Rate this:
Wit and watercolourist Michael Kluckner returns to the route of his good humour, a hobby farm beyond Vancouver's city limits, with refreshingly candid observations about animal husbandry. A la Herriott, Keillor, Bryson, and Mayle, he reinvents the domain of middle-age and expounds the merits of grass-is-greener, do-it-yourself living in an increasingly gentrified countryside. Reprised performances by the survivors of The Pullet Surprise complement a new flock of characters that together constitute a world of breeding and killing best described as farm noir.
