On her 19th birthday, Oona begins experiencing her life out of chronological order, leaping to a random year each New Year’s Eve. Though Oona’s situation is extreme, anyone can relate to her struggle to live in the moment and accept whatever comes next. I looked forward to seeing what each new leap would bring.

What is the best way to live in a cruel and barbaric world? How should we value the lives of animals compared to those of humans? Who is worthy of a voice? These are the questions confronting Janina—an elderly astrologist living in a rural Polish village. Translated from its original Polish in 2018, Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead is a dark fable with a complicated morality and eccentric humor fit for our contemporary predicaments.

This lush retelling of The Portrait of Dorian Gray, centering on two opposite-as-can-be sisters in Victorian London, has it all: fencing, a secret society of extreme hedonists, demon summoning and demon slaying, mysterious uncles, queer romance...if your taste is at all like mine, you're probably already halfway to the register.
