So I finished reading last week The Bucolic Plague: How Two Manhattanites Became Gentlemen Farmers: An Unconventional Memoir by Josh Kilmer-Purcell and I have to say I did really enjoy this book. I do have to disclose that I am a big fan of his show Fabulous Beekman Boys so I may be a bit bias on my book review. I just enjoyed the back story of how they came to find the Beekman and what they had originally wanted from the Beekman. I liked learning more about the characters of Sharon Springs NY. I loved this descriptions of the animals and his relationships with them. I love his love hate relationship with Martha Stewart because don't we all have a love/hate relationship with her? I loved the stories of the zombie flies that never die in the mansion. I love how patient Farmer John is with the two of them. I loved how he did not paint a picture of a magical life on a farm. It was really hard for them and they continue to struggle. Towards the end of the book I truly believed Josh and Brent were going to break up but I have seen their show and the new season has just started on Planet Green so I assured myself that even though the book left me with a feeling of "the end', I knew their story continues on in television land!
