In a remote Polish village, Janina Duszejko, an eccentric woman in her sixties, recounts the events surrounding the disappearance of her two dogs. She is reclusive, preferring the company of animals to people; she’s unconventional, believing in the stars; and she is fond of the poetry of William Blake. When members of a local hunting club are found murdered, Duszejko becomes involved in the investigation. A distinctively unconventional crime story,¬† Nobel-prize winning¬† Tokarczuk offers thought-provoking ideas on our perceptions of madness, injustice against marginalized people, animal rights and the hypocrisy of traditional religion.
