Many people dream of leaving the workaday world for a life of simplicity and freedom, and Margaret Hathaway and her then-boyfriend Karl did just that. In The Year of the Goat, you can jump in the “goat mobile” with them as they ditch their big-city lifestyle to trek across forty-three states in search of greener pastures and the perfect goat cheese. Along the way, you’ll meet a vivid cast of characters. But beware: When it comes to goat cheese, it can be love at first bite.
“Hathaway’s descriptions of the various characters they meet—both human and goat—are funny and vivid.”
“Anyone who has watched someone fall in love will recognize the symptoms: It’s sweet; it’s naive; it’s insane; it’s contagious. But what Hathaway and Schatz . . . have fallen for is the idea of raising goats.”
“Back-to-the-land fantasies aren’t new, but Hathaway gives theirs a modern twist.”
“Reading Margaret and Karl’s delightful journey reminded me of the ideals that brought many of us at Moosewood together over thirty years ago. . . . And boy did I learn a lot about goats and cheese!”
—Wynnie Stein, co-owner/author, Moosewood Restaurant
