Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead

Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead

“One day we shall all be nothing but corpses.” That day is today for Big Foot in Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead.

There is no love lost between neighbors, Big Foot and our narrator, Mrs. Duszejko. Big Foot was a thief and just an overall unpleasant person. So why does Big Foot’s only other neighbor, Oddball, move the body and change its clothes after Big Foot is murdered?

More like a fable or a dream than a mystery, Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead is very good at getting what is trying to achieve. However, this book is only recommended to literary fiction fans. 4 stars!

Thanks to Riverhead Books and Edelweiss+ for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
