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.

O autoru

Jeanine Cummins uspješna je američka spisateljica. Rođena je u Španjolskoj, a većinu djetinjstva provela je u Gaithersburgu u Marylandu. U dobi od šesnaest godina, Jeanineina je obitelj doživjela veliku tragediju – u nasilnom zločinu smrtno su stradala njezina dva rođaka, a njezin je brat bio jedina preživjela žrtva napada. Upravo je taj zločin i utjecaj koji je imao na njezinu obitelj bio inspiracija za memoare Rip in Heaven (2004.) koji su postali veliki bestseler. U svojoj novoj knjizi Američka prašina, Jeanine problematizira tematiku meksičkih i srednjoameričkih migranata koji pokušavaju prijeći u SAD.
