The Farm

"Surrogate insemination, swinging sex, shonky book-keeping and stag poetry contribute to the merriment…Jim and Maggie Greene's depressed Manawatu backcountry holding isn't coping with a rural downturn, let alone Jim's knee jerk attempts to diversify…It's doubtful their fraying marriage will survive either. And then there's a miracle - of sorts. Two Russian cycle tourists, Tatyana and husband Konstantin get clobbered at their gate by a wayward steer. "
