About this product
- DescriptionIt's 1842 in Prussian-dominated Poland. Something sinister is happening in the peaceful, bucolic countryside surrounding the village of Lasin, causing people to keep their doors locked. It begins when sexually-addicted Moishe Karwski, the rabbi's son, stumbles upon a coven of Satan-worshippers deep in the forest. There are murders, rapes, a kidnapping, and sacrileges. There's a cultural clash: Catholic Poles, Lutheran Prussians, and Jews. Collaborators with the regime clash with resisters. All leads to a surprise ending.
Gerry uses insights gleaned from keen observations of people. In Hollywood's portrayal, religion is just ather prop; in this pre-industrial society people actually live by the faiths they profess. He puts to use fifty years of accumulated history and sociology of the region. You won't be able to wait until you read the next book on Walenty's strange life.
