Lydia Quixano Pérez lives in the Mexican city of Acapulco. She runs a bookstore and her eight-year-old son, Luca, is the love of her life. Her wonderful husband is a journalist. And while there are cracks beginning to show in Acapulco because of the drug cartels, her life is, by and large, fairly comfortable.
Lydia stocks some of her all-time favorite books in her store, although they never sell. One day a man enters the shop to browse and buys two of her favorites. He is a charming great conversationalist. And, unbeknownst to Lydia, he is the jefe of the newest drug cartel in Acapulco. When Lydia’s husband’s tell-all profile of Javier is published, none of their lives will ever be the same.
Forced to flee, Lydia and Luca soon find themselves miles and worlds away from their comfortable middle-class existence. Instantly transformed into migrants. As they join the countless people trying to reach El Norte, Lydia soon sees that everyone is running from something. But what exactly are they running to? American Dirt will leave readers utterly changed. It is a literary achievement filled with poignancy, drama, and humanity on every page. It is one of the most important books for our time.
