'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.
