This is a novel that daylights our common humanity, and challenges us to reconcile our differences. -- The Washington Post In Valeria Luisellis 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 familys 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.

Valeria Luiselli

Née à Mexico en 1983, Valeria Luiselli termine un doctorat de littérature comparée à l'université Columbia de New York. Elle écrit pour des journaux mexicains et américains (New York Times et Reforma). Son premier ouvrage, Papeles falsos, recueil d'essais et de récits publié en 2010 et inédit en français, lui a valu une reconnaissance immédiate.
Des êtres sans gravité, déjà publié au Royaume-Uni par Granta, est en cours de traduction dans une dizaine de langues.
Elle est probablement l'écrivain le plus prometteur des lettres mexicaines contemporaines.
