Welcome to The Farm. `The Handmaid's Tale of 2019' - Marie Claire `Set to be one of the biggest books for 2019' - Stylist `The debut to order now' - Sunday Times `A firecracker of a novel' - Madeline Miller Life is a lucrative business, as long as you play by the rules... Ambitious businesswoman Mae Yu runs Golden Oaks - a luxury retreat transforming the fertility industry. There, women get the very best of everything: organic meals, fitness trainers, daily massages and big money. Provided they dedicate themselves to producing the perfect baby. For someone else. Jane is a young immigrant in search of a better future. Stuck living in a cramped dorm with her baby daughter and her shrewd aunt Ate, she sees an unmissable chance to change her life. But at what cost? Perfect for fans of Celeste Ng, Margaret Atwood, Naomi Alderman, Sophie Mackintosh, Christine Dalcher and anyone who loved The Help or Orange Is the New Black. PRAISE FOR THE FARM `The Farm terrifies with a simple question: How much of ourselves are we willing to sell?' - Christina Dalcher, author of Vox `Think Never Let Me Go meets The Handmaid's Tale' - Sunday Times `Oh my GOSH this is amazing. It's about everything a book SHOULD be about. Race and class and power and inequality' - Joanna Cannon, author of Three Things about Elsie

MEDIA REVIEWS
This topical, provocative debut anatomises class, race and the American dream * Guardian *
Utterly brilliant. I couldn't put it down! -- Christie Watson, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Language of Kindness
Chillingly plausible -- Sophie Mackintosh, author of the Booker-longlisted The Water Cure
Couldn't be more relevant or timely * O Magazine *
Brilliantly cutting -- Reni Eddo-Lodge, author of Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race
A knock-out debut novel -- Paula Daly, author of 'Open Your Eyes'
Wow ... Truly unforgettable -- Gary Shteyngart
One of the most hotly anticipated debuts this year - and for good reason * Cosmopolitan *
Smart and thought-provoking * Stylist *
An unsettling, unputdownable read * Elle *
The first debut of 2019 to grab the top spot for me ... Don't miss this one * Bookseller, Book of the Month *
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
Amazing. It's hard to explain what The Farm is about, because it's about everything a book SHOULD be about. Race and class and power and inequality, and it's dark & funny ALL AT THE SAME TIME -- Joanna Cannon, Sunday Times bestselling author of Three Things About Elsie and The Trouble with Goats and Sheep
Ramos has written a firecracker of a novel, at once caustic and tender, page-turning and thought-provoking. This is a fierce indictment of the vampiric nature of modern capitalism, which never loses sight of the very human stories at its center. Highly recommended -- Madeline Miller, author of Circe
The debut to order now ... Think Never Let Me Go meets The Handmaid's Tale * Sunday Times *
A highly original and provocative story about the impossible choices in so many women's lives. These characters will stay with me for a long time -- Karen Thompson Walker, author of 'The Age of Miracles'
Consider this The Handmaid's Tale of 2019 ... In the vein of The Circle, but somehow more penetrating and realistic * Marie Claire *
Ramos creates a believable dystopian future where poor women try to make money and change their societal standing by offering up their bodies to house and deliver healthy babies for the rich. The novel alternates perspectives between four women and provides notes on fundamental inequalities -- The best books to look forward to in 2019 * Evening Standard *
Excellent, both as a reproductive dystopian narrative and as a social novel about women and class -- Starred Review * Kirkus *
