An unputdownable tale of survival against the odds, American Dirt is raw in its truth, tragedy and unwavering determination and grit. It’s an astonishing, thrilling novel that gives a voice to a people who have been silenced, misrepresented and brutally homogenised by our media. It’s full of love, of raw truth and an empathy that’s unforgettable.

What the Critics are Saying
Cummins humanises the migrant crisis, delivering a powerful portrayl of the extraordinary lengths people will go to in order to save their loved ones...it is hard to imagine that 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.
It's been a long time since I turned pages as fast as I did with American Dirt. Its journey is a testament to the power of fear and hope and belief that there are more good people than bad.
