Description

American Dirt is the first novel to explore the experience of attempting to illegally cross the US-Mexico border, a journey which thousands of migrants make each year.

Yesterday, Lydia had a bookshop.
Yesterday, Lydia was married to a journalist.
Yesterday, she was with everyone she loved most in the world.

Today, her eight-year-old son Luca is all she has left.

For him, she will carry a machete strapped to her leg.
For him, she will leap onto the roof of a high speed train.
For him, she will find the strength to keep running.

Vivid, visceral, utterly compelling, American Dirt is both a page turner and a literary achievement: a novel that will leave you utterly changed.
