"The tense opening chapter of this forceful and timely novel is set in the autumn of 1981 in Bukowo, a small village in the Vistula River in south-east Poland. here an important meeting has been called for a group of militant farmers, led by Janko Buk, to present their grievances and demands to the Minister of Agriculture, Szymon Bukowski, and other Communist officials. When the farmers insist that the local Catholic bishop join the discussion, Warsaw orders a four-week adjournment. The final chapter is a continuation of the first."
