I adore the Beekman boys' story. Their unlikely story of love, the land, and a herd of goats is hilariously honest. If these two can go from Manhattan to a goat farm in upstate New York, then I can't help feeling there is hope for us all. -Alice Waters Kilmer-Purcell's genius lies in his ability to blindside the reader with heart-wrenching truths in the midst of the most outlandish scenarios. He makes you laugh until you care. - Armistead Maupin Michael Perry (Coop, Truck: A Love Story) meets David Sedaris (Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim) in this follow-up to Josh Kilmer-Purcell's beloved New York Times bestselling debut memoir, I Am Not Myself These Days-another riotous, moving, and entirely unique story of his attempt to tackle the next phase of life with his partner... on a goat farm in upstate New York.

Reviews for The Bucolic Plague: How Two Manhattanites Became Gentlemen Farmers: An Unconventional Memoir

Baby goats, diarrhea, and Martha Stewart. Former drag queen turned goat farmer Josh Kilmer-Purcell begins his latest book, The Bucolic Plague, with a hilarious vignette involving all three. Clearly, the man has an interesting story to tell. --Wisconsin State Journal
