Last month I read Olga Tokarczuk’s Flights, released in English. It was immediately obvious that Olga knew what I knew, although she probably knows it more deeply and is able to express it more clearly.
I needed to know more of what she knew. I broke my rule about never reading two books by the same author consecutively and bought two copies of her earlier novel Primeval and Other Times (one in paperback to mark up for Inktober, and one on Kindle to keep forever.) I’m using this novel’s strong imagery for my Inktober muse.
I hope you enjoy the journey, and I hope Olga Tokarczuk is someone you know you know, right away.
Below are the first three days of my Inktober’s drawings along with bits of the text that inspired them.
