Read & download The Bucolic Plague The Bucolic Plague Summary µ 109 “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 ge 3 stars I was looking for something light and funny when I decided to listen to this one as an audio There is much I liked about The Bucolic Plague but much that irked meWhat I liked I like the premise of the memoir Two gay men deeply engaged in their urban New York life find an old mansion in the country that they restore and turn into a weekend farm Much of the book is taken up with their sometimes comical efforts to become accustomed to country life They also make a real effort to become members of the community and Kilmer Purcell writes with real affection about his neighbours Kilmer Purcell is generally funny and self deprecating in that self confident way some self deprecating people have With all of these ualities there is no doubt that the book is entertainingWhat irked me I can t understand and didn t appreciate why this book fetishizes Martha Stewart and Oprah Winfrey Kilmer Purcell s partner worked for Martha Stewart during the first part of the memoir and both of them appeared on her show to talk about the farm and she is referred to over and over again throughout the book Kilmer Purcell was an audience member for the taping of one of Oprah s shows and he claims the experience brought him an epiphany Ultimately Kilmer Purcell suggests that Martha and Oprah present opposing life views something along the lines of perfection v the good life and that he and his partner struggled over which of these views to embrace in their lives as country gentleman I get the point but why rely so heavily on these figures of American pop culture to present this dichotomy I found it distracting and annoying Knowing that these two now have a reality tv show of their own I sometimes felt that I was reading a celebratory ad for popular tv rather than an entertaining memoir about the clash between city and country livingBottom line Great premise but mixed deliveryI will note that I really liked the audio version The narrator had a perfect voice for Kilmer Purcell and did a good job putting on the occasional voices of other people depicted in the memoir
