    “[Joanne] Ramos’s debut novel couldn’t be more relevant or timely.” (O: The Oprah Magazine

    Named One of the Best Books of the Year by TimeGlamourReal Simple • Good HousekeepingMarie ClaireTown & Country 

    Nestled in New York’s Hudson Valley is a luxury retreat boasting every amenity: organic meals, personal fitness trainers, daily massages - and all of it for free. In fact, you’re paid big money to stay here - more than you’ve ever dreamed of. The catch? For nine months, you cannot leave the grounds, your movements are monitored, and you are cut off from your former life while you dedicate yourself to the task of producing the perfect baby. For someone else. 

    Jane, an immigrant from the Philippines, is in desperate search of a better future when she commits to being a “Host” at Golden Oaks - or the Farm, as residents call it. But now pregnant, fragile, consumed with worry for her family, Jane is determined to reconnect with her life outside. Yet she cannot leave the Farm or she will lose the life-changing fee she’ll receive on the delivery of her child. 

    Gripping, provocative, heartbreaking, The Farm pushes to the extremes our thinking on motherhood, money, and merit and raises crucial questions about the trade-offs women will make to fortify their futures and the futures of those they love. 

    Nominated for the NAACP Image Award

    Longlisted for The Center for Fiction First Novel Prize

    Praise for The Farm

    “So many factors - gender, race, religion, class - may determine where you come down on the surrogacy debate.... Ramos plays with many of these notions in her debut novel, The Farm, which imagines what might happen were surrogacy taken to its high-capitalist extreme.... The stage is set for lively book chat.” (The New York Times Book Review (Editors’ Choice)

    “A thrilling read.” (New York

    “Grippingly realistic.” (Entertainment Weekly)

    “Brilliant.” (New York Post)

    “A provocative idea, and Ramos nails it.... Crisp and believable, this smart debut links the poor and the one percent in a unique transaction that turns out to be mutually rewarding.” (People)

    “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 best-selling author of Super Sad True Love Story and Lake Success)

    Kritikerstimmen

    “A timely investigation of how much control we really have over our own situations, especially when it comes to women’s choice.... With glimmers of Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go and the dystopian eeriness of The Handmaid’s TaleThe Farm is equal parts entertaining and creepy.” (PureWow) 

    The Handmaid’s Tale vibes are strong, but the ‘holy sh*t this book is genius’ vibes are stronger.” (Cosmopolitan, “The 14 Best Books Coming Out in May 2019”) 

    “A horror story set in a not-impossible future, this fast-paced read will keep you on the edge of your seat as it explores topical issues with page-turning plot twists.” (MindBodyGreen, “5 Books You Won’t Be Able to Put Down This May”)
