Description

'Breathtaking... I haven't been so entirely consumed by a book for years' - Telegraph.


'I couldn't put it down. I'll never stop thinking about it' - Ann Patchett


FEAR KEEPS THEM RUNNING. HOPE KEEPS THEM ALIVE.


Vivid, visceral, utterly compelling, AMERICAN DIRT is the unforgettable story of a mother and son's attempt to cross the US-Mexico border. A sensation from the moment it published, it continues to create debate and ignite conversation globally. 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.
