Dramatic Comedy Characters: 3 male, 3 female.
Rural New England, just before Reagan's second
term. Meg and Ben are a creditor away from
losing their family farm. To the rescue flies a
high-powered businessman - in a private chopper
no less - offering a tidy sum for a taste of
farm life and the pure, raw milk that goes with
it. Even before locavores roamed the earth,
"back to the land" was hardly as simple as its
promise; livestock and humans aren't known
for behaving as expected. And so it is Milk, an
elegant parable of change set on the cusp of
a shifting American landscape. . "There is an
engagingly original streak running through
her writing... [DeVoti] fills Milk with interesting
details (lots of cow knowledge) and unexpected
touches." -The New York Times..
