Why is Susan Juby not more famous? The woman is on par with Christopher Moore in terms of chuckles per page and one of the few authors out there who can pull off some seriously good humor. Take one well-intentioned New Yorker with no farming experience, add a crabby old handyman, a recovering alcoholic heavy metal head and a chicken-raising tween with family issues and you have Woefield Farm, the site of ensuing hilarity when this rag tag team tries to raise something other than a glass or a flag. So clever and light-hearted that you almost miss the messages about the importance of kindness, sobriety, and family that are tucked neatly between laughs. Pair Woefield with The Bucolic Plague: How Two Manhattanites Became Gentlemen Farmers: An Unconventional Memoir for the perfect fiction/nonfiction experience of urbanite farming. A wonderful book to read and share with a friend. So please, friends, read it!
