American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins


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.

'Heartstopping... doesn't let up... you will urge them on, fists clenched' The Times

'Stunning... remarkable... an account of love on the run that will never lose steam' Vogue

'This might be the first book many people read this year... it might also be the best' Irish Times

'Taut, tough, visceral, savage and exhilaratingly written' i-Paper
