“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 genius lies in his ability to blindside the reader with heart-wrenching truths in the midst of the most outlandish scenarios. He makes you laugh until you care.” — Armistead Maupin
Michael Perry (Coop, Truck: A Love Story) meets David Sedaris (Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim) in this follow-up to Josh Kilmer-Purcell’s beloved New York Times bestselling debut memoir, I Am Not Myself These Days—another riotous, moving, and entirely unique story of his attempt to tackle the next phase of life with his partner… on a goat farm in upstate New York.

Very funny. Well written
I love his style of writing and his sharp wit. Creating interesting characters and funny ones such as the zombie flies, and to tie them in throughout the entire story. His observations on life and relationships are honest, hilarious, and real. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Also enjoying watching the fabulous beekman boys too. When's the next book?
I found this to be funny, informative, and what life is about. The ups & downs of what makes a relationship strong. Everyone could learn from the boys that you must work as a team. Relationships are worth the time you invest in them. God bless the boys and all there friends.
Just a pleasure to laugh out loud at the hysterics and admire the gumption, hard work and skill. I want their spunk. I think it will be my next good thing....
