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

'One hell of a novel about a good woman on the run with her beautiful boy' Stephen King

FEAR KEEPS THEM RUNNING. HOPE KEEPS THEM ALIVE.

Vivid, visceral, utterly compelling, AMERICAN DIRT is the first novel to explore the experience of attempting to illegally cross the US-Mexico border. Described as 'A Grapes of Wrath for our times' (Don Winslow) it is a story that will leave you utterly changed.

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.

As someone living and working in Australia, the Latin American migrant experience seems worlds apart to me. While a work of fiction, Jeanine Cummins' American dirt was eye-opening. When Lydia's whole family is murdered by a vengeful cartel, she and her son Luca are forced on the run. Confronting and moving, this is truly a story for our times. - Sean (QBD)
