American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins


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.

Peer & Press Reviews

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

Devastating and timely… it is hard to imagine there will be a more urgent or politically relevant novel this year.


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
