Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead, by Olga Tokarczuk [2009; Translated edition 2018]

R. Tim Morris’ Rating: 8/10

While not a big reader of the Murder Mystery genre, DRIVE YOUR PLOW OVER THE BONES OF THE DEAD is most certainly not constrained to the genre’s usual conventions. I’ve never read Olga Tokarczuk before, but will probably hunt down (pardon the pun if you’ve read this book) some more of her work. Tokarczuk has an incredible way with language, and this character-driven tale is really highlighted by the protagonist’s eccentric thoughts & unique voice.
To say more would be spoiling some of the fun of this one.
