Description of this Book

Sharp, compulsive and darkly funny, The Farm is an unforgettable novel about a world within touching distance of our own. Ambitious businesswoman Mae Yu runs Golden Oaks - a luxury retreat transforming the fertility industry - where women get the very best of everything, so long as they play by the rules. Jane is a young immigrant in search of a better future. Stuck living in a cramped dorm with her baby daughter and shrewd aunt Ate, she sees an unmissable chance to change her life. But at what cost? A novel that explores the role of luck and merit, class, ambition and sacrifice, The Farm is an unforgettable story about how we live and who truly holds power.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Wow, Joanne Ramos has written the page-turner about immigrants chasing what's left of the American dream. Truly unforgettable * Gary Shteyngart, New York Times bestselling author of Super Sad True Love Story and Lake Success * A chillingly plausible imagination of the future of pregnancy in a world of ever-greater inequality ... Sharply prescient, and terrifying too * Sophie Mackintosh, author of the Booker-longlisted The Water Cure * The Farm terrifies with a simple question: How much of ourselves are we willing to sell? With characters so real they leap off the page, Ramos yanks the reader into a world of Haves and Have-Nots, and her question lingers long after we turn the final page * Christina Dalcher, author of Vox *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
