Lost Children Archive by Valeria Luiselli (February 12)
Valeria Luiselli takes the classic American road-trip narrative and adds in meditations on family, culture, and the systemic flaws surrounding our current immigration process. Luiselli was named one of the “5 Under 35” authors to watch by the National Book Foundation and is a two-time nominee for the Kirkus Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award.
“Juxtaposing rich, poetic prose with direct storytelling, and alternating narratives with photos, documents, poems, maps, and music, Lost Children Archive explores what holds a family and society together, and what pulls them apart,” writes Publishers Weekly in a starred review. “Everyone should read this book,” adds award-winning novelist Tommy Orange.
