Staff Reviews

Eccentric and dark in the best possible way. The narrator, Janina, lives on a remote stretch of land on the border of Poland and the Czech Republic, where there is a lot of snow and very few people. The novel begins the night one of her neighbors, dubbed "Big Foot" by Janina, dies suddenly. This book will keep you enthralled.

“Janina is an eccentric middle-aged woman who translates William Blake, studies astrology, and is acutely attuned to the wilderness around her in rural Poland. When hunters and poachers begin to be gruesomely murdered, Janina informs the police that the animals are responsible. As the bodies mount, so does her involvement with the mystery, although her status as a crank and possible madwoman ensures that she’s ignored. This is an extraordinary and disturbing tale — a mystery that becomes more complex as the story continues, accompanied by Janina’s often witty observations on man, nature, justice, and identity. The ending of this hard-to-categorize novel, a finalist for the 2019 Man Booker International Prize, will knock the breath out of you. Don’t miss this excellent translated work from an award-winning writer!”
