The Farm is a Skimm Reads Pick

The Farm is a Skimm Reads pick in the Daily Skimm Newsletter! Here’s what they had to say about it:
“Imagine an all-expenses paid luxury spa retreat for women. The catch? You have to carry someone else’s baby to be there. This one’s like “The Handmaid’s Tale” meets Liane Moriarty (“Big Little Lies” author).”
–The Daily Skimm; July 3rd, 2019

The Farm is a Cityline Book-Club Pick

The Canadian talk show Cityline chose The Farm as it’s June book-club pick! I absolutely loved speaking to the dynamic and beautiful Tracy Moore about the book, straddling worlds, and how most people are neither villains nor saints, but complex, conflicted beings.

The Farm is The Social’s Social Chapter Book-Club Pick

At a book event in Toronto in May, I met Melissa Grelo, the moderator of the popular Canadian talk show, The Social. She told me that The Social’s book club, Social Chapter, had chosen The Farm to be its June book! See the announcement here!

The Atlantic: “14 books our staffers are reading this summer”

The Farm, Joanne Ramos’s 2019 debut novel, is a potent tangle of these themes: the corrosive allure of privilege, the ethics of putting a price on fertility, the fine line between employment and exploitation.”
