American Dirt

American Dirt

Hardback £14.99

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.

What our customers say

Everyone there is enthusiastic and friendly. They really know about books, and they display them so enticingly that it is hard to walk past! They are expert at looking up obscure publications, and efficient at getting most things in the very next day. Couldn’t be better.

This is the best bookshop I know. A small shop, packed with stock, it is run by helpful and knowledgeable staff, who obviously enjoy reading, and are willing and able to advise customers. Orders arrive within 24 hours. Book selection for children is particularly good.
