Joey Robinson is a 35-year-old advertising executive employed in Manhattan. OF THE FARM recounts his visit to the farm where he grew up and where his mother now lives alone. Accompanied by his newly acquired second wife, Peggy, and an 11-year-old stepson, Joey spends three days reassessing and evaluating the course his life has run. But for Joey and Peggy, the delicate balance of love and sex is threatened by a dangerous new awareness.

"Very clearly and very completely a small masterpiece." (The New York Times)
