Description
"También de este lado hay sueños. Lydia Quixano Perez lives in the Mexican city of Acapulco. She runs a bookstore. She has a son, Luca, the love of her life, and a wonderful husband who is a journalist. And while there are cracks beginning to show in Acapulco because of the drug cartels, her life is, by and large, fairly comfortable. Even though she knows they'll never sell, Lydia stocks some of her all-time favorite books in her store. And then one day a man enters the shop to browse and comes up to the register with four books he would like to buy-two of them her favorites. Javier is erudite. He is charming. And, unbeknownst to Lydia, he is the jefe of the newest drug cartel that has gruesomely taken over the city. When Lydia's husband's tell-all profile of Javier is published, none of their lives will ever be the same. Forced to flee, Lydia and eight-year-old Luca soon find themselves miles and worlds away from their comfortable middle-class existence. Instantly transformed into migrants, Lydia and Luca ride la bestia-trains that make their way north toward the United States, which is the only place Javier's reach doesn't extend. As they join the countless people trying to reach el norte, Lydia soon sees that everyone is running from something. But what exactly are they running to? American Dirt will leave readers utterly changed when they finish reading it. A page-turner filled with poignancy, drama, and humanity on every page, it is a literary achievement."--
"Lydia Quixano Pérez vive en Acapulco, México, donde lleva su librería. Tiene un hijo, Luca, el amor de su vida, y un maravilloso esposo que es periodista. Y aunque la vida en Acapulco comienza a agrietarse debido a los cárteles de la droga, su vida es confortable. Un día llega un hombre a la librería y compra cuatro libros, entre los que se encuentran dos de las obras favoritas de Lydia, que piensa que nunca va a vender. Javier es erudito, encantador, aunque Lydia no lo sabe, es el jefe del nuevo cártel que se ha apoderado de la ciudad. Cuando se publica el revelador artículo sobre Javier que el esposo de Lydia escribe para el periódico local, sus vidas cambiarán para siempre. Forzados a huir, Lydia y Luca, de ocho años, pronto se encuentran a kilómetros de su cómoda existencia. Transformados instantáneamente en migrantes, Lydia y Luca viajan en La Bestia, los trenes que se dirigen al norte hacia Estados Unidos, el único lugar donde Javier no podrá encontrarlos. Cuando se unen a las innumerables personas que intentan llegar al norte, Lydia pronto se da cuenta que todos huyen de algo. ¿Pero hacia qué huyen exactamente?"--amazon.com.
