Staff Reviews

I have long been waiting for a masterpiece like this, exquisite storytelling that is at once observant and removed, yet deeply personal, getting to the very heart. Luiselli's new novel explores the way we come to know our lives and our world, how we tell our stories, and how we are told them. Effortlessly intertwining an American road trip, a childhood awakening, a family in slow crisis, and the greater plight of child refugees, Lost Children Archive captures the beautiful painful reality of being alive in this moment, in each moment, demanding that we listen, remember and continue to care.

February 2019 Indie Next List

“Really incredible fiction takes you on a journey, and somewhere along the way you realize how much of it reflects your own reality. In Lost Children Archive, Valeria Luiselli’s narrator is highly observant of her inner life and the world around her. She unravels a story that’s about family and how walls between people and nations are built — and what they damage. In reading this book, I felt like I was in the car on the family’s road trip — feeling all the conflicting emotions that Luiselli’s narrator is feeling as a partner, mother, and resident in today’s United States.”
— Zoey Cole, Books Are Magic, Brooklyn, NY
