內容簡介

入選歐普拉雜誌(O: The Oprah Magazine) “2019年迫不及待閱讀的25本書 


生命,真是筆賺大錢的買賣,只要你照著遊戲規則來!

 

安居哈德遜河谷,享受著每一個值得吹噓的待遇:有機餐、個人健身教練以及每日的按摩,而且所有的這一切都是免費的!不僅如此,你還可以從中獲取大量的酬勞,這簡直是難以想像的事啊!莫非這是個圈套 

Jane是來自菲律賓的移民,也是個生活掙扎的單親媽媽,經過激烈的競爭,她終於來到了農場。只要在這裡待上九個月,為超級有錢的老闆生下完美的嬰孩,否則絕對不能離開這個到處是監視器的地方。現在她懷孕了,脆弱而無助,且心心念念在農場外的女兒,Jane多麼想與她過去的生活,也就是外面的世界接觸,但是一旦她離開農場,就將付出慘痛的代價!

 這本令人傷心、懸疑且引起討論的小說,促使我們思考何謂母性、金錢與美德,並且提出被當作商品的女性如何捍衛她們自己與她們所愛的人的未來這個重要的課題。這本初試啼聲之作,獲英國《衛報》盛讚「解剖了階級、種族和美國夢」。

 


Life is a lucrative business, as long as you play by the rules.

"[Joanne] Ramos's debut novel couldn't be more relevant or timely."-O: The Oprah Magazine (25 Books We Can't Wait to Read in 2019)

Nestled in New York's Hudson Valley is a luxury retreat boasting every amenity: organic meals, personal fitness trainers, daily massages-and all of it for free. In fact, you're paid big money to stay here-more than you've ever dreamed of. The catch? For nine months, you cannot leave the grounds, your movements are monitored, and you are cut off from your former life while you dedicate yourself to the task of producing the perfect baby. For someone else.

Jane, an immigrant from the Philippines, is in desperate search of a better future when she commits to being a "Host" at Golden Oaks-or the Farm, as residents call it. But now pregnant, fragile, consumed with worry for her family, Jane is determined to reconnect with her life outside. Yet she cannot leave the Farm or she will lose the life-changing fee she'll receive on the delivery of her child.

Gripping, provocative, heartbreaking, The Farm pushes to the extremes our thinking on motherhood, money, and merit and raises crucial questions about the trade-offs women will make to fortify their futures and the futures of those they love.
