American Dirt

5th August 2019

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.

Vivid, visceral, utterly compelling, American Dirt is an unforgettable story of a mother and son’s attempt to cross the US-Mexico border. Hazel loved this book, about an indie bookshop owner forced to flee her home. She found it riveting, thought-provoking, and utterly, utterly wonderful.
