Rivka Galchen’s sharp satire Everyone Knows Your Mother Is a Witch turns the notorious conceit of the witch hunt into a clever exploration of fear and longing. Inspired by the real story of Katharina Kepler, a German woman in the 1600s (and the mother of astrologer Johannes Kepler) who was accused of being a witch, Galchen uses humor and acuity to delve into the depths of our social and political fears—and their very real consequences.
