Gibson's Bookstore is thrilled to bring Jeanine Cummins to Concord to present her stunning novel, American Dirt, a terrifying and tender novel with the blunt answer to the question of why immigrants from Latin America cross the U.S. border--and a testimony to the courage it takes to do it.
All's well for Lydia Quixano Perez, who runs a bookstore in Acapulco while raising beloved son Luca, until her journalist husband writes a reveal-all profile of the jefe of the newest drug cartel brutalizing the city. For safety, she and her family are forced to flee north, trying to get onto "American dirt"--but what will life be like for them when they arrive?
Already being hailed as "a Grapes of Wrath for our times" and "a new American classic," Jeanine Cummins's American Dirt is a rare exploration into the inner hearts of people willing to sacrifice everything for a glimmer of hope.
About the author: Jeanine Cummins is the author of the novels The Outside Boy and The Crooked Branch, and the bestselling memoir A Rip in Heaven. She lives in New York with her husband and two children.
