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.

What if the inevitable alien takeover happened not with a bang, but with a caress? The sweet caress of intoxicants, immortality, and easy access to everything you ever wanted. There’d be at least one person who found the whole “the world is perfect thing” utterly depressing, right? Meet Trina FastHorse Goldberg-Oneka. Her story is a funny, heartfelt ride.

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.
