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.

I defy anyone to read the first seven pages of this book and not finish it
