“There are times when I feel like a stranger in this country. I am not complaining and it’s not for lack of opportunity. But it is something of a disappointment. I never would have imagined that after having spent thirty five years in the United States I would still be a stranger to so many. But that’s how it is”. Jorge Ramos, an Emmy award-winning journalist, Univision’s longtime anchorman and widely considered the “voice of the voiceless” within the Latino community, was forcefully removed from an Iowa press conference in 2015 by then-candidate Donald Trump after trying to ask about his plans on immigration. In this personal manifesto, Ramos sets out to examine what it means to be a Latino immigrant, or just an immigrant, in present-day America. Using current research and statistics, with a journalist’s nose for a story, and interweaving his own personal experience, Ramos shows us the changing face of America while also trying to find an explanation for why he, and millions of others, still feel like strangers in this country. “It is precisely this pattern of confrontation… that has won Ramos the trust of so many Hispanics. They know that in many countries south of the United States, direct questions can provoke not simply a loss of access but also a loss of life.” --Marcela Valdes, The New York Times
Welcome to "The Farm," a luxury retreat where women receive big money to become surrogate mothers . . . so long as they play by the rules.For wealthy clients, Golden Oaks Farm promises an environment perfectly calibrated to maximize the potential of their unborn children. For "hosts," the huge payout upon delivery can change the course of their often difficult lives. An immigrant from the Philippines and a struggling single mother, Jane is thrilled to make it through the highly competitive host selection process. But once she arrives at "The Farm" pregnant, fragile, and cut off from her own daughter, she discovers a different world behind the pristine façade. Along with the other hosts, Jane's existence becomes strictly regimented and meticulously observed--all for the benefit of their unseen clients.The intersecting lives of these unforgettable characters play out against the backdrop of the rural Hudson Valley, the lavish homes of the One Percent, and a crowded dormitory in Queens, where immigrant service workers rent beds. A novel that reveals a rich spectrum of female experience in a world that is very nearly our own, The Farm also calls into question a woman's agency over her body and, ultimately, illuminates the trade-offs women will make to fortify their futures, and the futures of those they love.
