'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.

Review:
One hell of a novel about a good woman on the run with her beautiful boy... I defy anyone to read the first seven pages of this book and not finish it (Stephen King)

It's been a long time since I turned pages as fast as I did with American Dirt. Its journey is a testament to the power of fear and hope and belief that there are more good people than bad. (John Grisham)

Tough, powerful... AMERICAN DIRT made me understand better why someone would give up the home they know and love to survive, and the grit required to cross that border (Tracy Chevalier)

From its heart-stopping first sentence to its heart-shattering last, Cummins' story of immigrants is just what we need now (Don Winslow)

AMERICAN DIRT transported me through genuine fear and had me willing on every human being struggling to get to a better life. Written with masterly restraint, it is a roaring human triumph (Laline Paull)

From the opening page your heart will be in your mouth You will never want to put this story down, Jeanine Cummins has written a novel of such moment, such danger and such compassion, it will change your view of the world (Kirsty Wark)

At once intimate and epic, AMERICAN DIRT is an exhilarating and beautiful book about parental love and human hope (Rumaan Alam)

So viscerally real and so elegantly written. From the very first page, you know it's just essential reading (Kate Leaver)

Will punch you in the gut one minute and fill you with hope the next (Shelf Awareness)

Urgent and unforgettable, AMERICAN DIRT leaps the borders of the page and demands attention, especially now (Sarah Blake)
Book Description:
The unforgettable story of a mother and son fleeing a drug-cartel to cross the US-Mexico border.
