Primaveal and Other Times by Olga Tokarczuk

primeval

Set in a mythical village in Poland , the novel is the saga of three generations and is telling the history of two families. The individual people are extremely authentic and real. They are struggling with historical circumstances as well as moral dilemmas.

To me it is a story, despite its ferocity, full of compassion for the people, animals and nature.

Primaveal and Other Times is a wonderful book. It has been translated into many languages. The author. Olga Tokarczuk is a winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature and the Man Booker International Prize.
