ONE OF THE NEW YORK TIMES 10 BEST BOOKS OF THE YEARONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: THE WASHINGTON POST - TIME MAGAZINE - NPR - CHICAGO TRIBUNE - GQ - O, THE OPRAH MAGAZINE - THE GUARDIAN - THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS - LIT HUB - KIRKUS REVIEWS - THE NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY - BOSTON.COM - PUREWOW "An epic road trip that also] captures the unruly intimacies of marriage and parenthood...This is a novel that daylights our common humanity, and challenges us to reconcile our differences."--Kristen Millares Young, The Washington Post "Impossibly smart, full of beauty, heart and insight...Everyone should read this book."--Tommy OrangeIn Valeria Luiselli's fiercely imaginative follow-up to the American Book Award-winning Tell Me How It Ends, an artist couple set out with their two children on a road trip from New York to Arizona in the heat of summer. As the family travels west, the bonds between them begin to fray: a fracture is growing between the parents, one the children can almost feel beneath their feet. Through ephemera such as songs, maps and a Polaroid camera, the children try to make sense of both their family's crisis and the larger one engulfing the news: the stories of thousands of kids trying to cross the southwestern border into the United States but getting detained--or lost in the desert along the way. A breath-taking feat of literary virtuosity, Lost Children Archive is timely, compassionate, subtly hilarious, and formally inventive--a powerful, urgent story about what it is to be human in an inhuman world.
