The Dirty Life - Kristin Kimball
In this engrossing memoir, Kristin Kimball whisks us along on her transformation from single journalist in New York City to married organic farmer in upstate country in The Dirty Life. She conveys vividly how moving from urban to rural landscapes changed the way she thought about food, health, commitment, and happiness. Since Kimball grew up in the suburbs, she describes her new life of rising with the roosters and making homegrown meals with a sense of wonder. The book will also put to shame any notion the reader has of the farming life as easy, or simple.
