Editorial Reviews

Review

“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”)
 
“You know those books that immediately draw you in and suddenly you can’t think of anything else? . . . A cracking, chilling but also human page-turner.”—Joanna Goddard, A Cup of Jo
 
“A sharp takedown of the idea of American meritocracy.”Refinery29
 
The Farm is a smart, thoughtful novel about women, choices, and the immigrant experience that asks the question: How far would you go for the American dream?”PopSugar, “Buzzy Books to Read This Spring”
 
“[The Farm] hits home hard—a thrilling read about the myth of meritocracy, the way some people get ahead in life before they’re even born.”New York, “Spring Books Preview”

“What’s so striking about The Farm isn’t that it imagines a frightening dystopia. This isn’t a hundred years in the future, it’s next week. This is reality, nudged just a touch to its logical extreme. Its very plausibility is a warning shot.”USA Today

“Heady, chilling . . . [Ramos] peoples her book with figures who are appealingly engaging—or, at times, engagingly repellent.”—NPR 

“Richly rendered and engrossing . . . [Ramos] has the acute gaze of the immigrant girl made good. Her book is a necessary one. . . . A great read.”The Guardian 

“A haunting read . . . Ramos has crafted a real page-turner that combines all the hottest issues of the day: inequality, race and women’s battle to reclaim their bodies from commodification by big business, with the eternal questions of how much we can sacrifice before losing ourselves completely. . . .  The result is an entertaining novel that is also a serious warning.”The Times (UK)

“Subtle and at times thrilling, The Farm is a dystopia born of the world in which we live. It feels anything but removed from our current reality.”Paste 

“[The Farm] is a fast, gripping read, and it’s ideally suited to a period of growing political engagement, in which readers want art to grapple with the moral dilemmas of our time.”Pacific Standard 

About the Author

Joanne Ramos was born in the Philippines and moved to Wisconsin when she was six. She graduated with a B.A. from Princeton University. After working in investment banking and private-equity investing, she became a staff writer at The Economist. She currently serves on the board of The Moth and lives in New York City with her family. The Farm, her debut novel, is a national bestseller and has been chosen by over 50 media outlets in America and abroad as a “must read” in 2019. The Farm was longlisted for the Center of Fiction’s 2019 First Novel Prize. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
