Lost Children Archive

Valeria Luiselli

Valeria Luiselli’s Lost Children Archive is an extraordinary and virtuosic achievement of writing. It is at once a road novel, a deeply affecting family drama, a commentary on migration and the displacement of populations, and a rumination on the power of art and literature to make sense of the world around us. Every sentence is rich with intelligence and insight; this is the kind of writing that makes you want to fold pages, underline sentences and quote passages. It is writing that makes you desperate to read more, to see more and experience more. Lost Children Archive is mind expanding literature—uncommonly beautiful, thoughtful and profound.

“Impossibly smart, full of beauty, heart and insight . . . Everyone should read this book.”–Tommy Orange
