Lost Children Archive: A novel (English Edition) Kindle电子书
In Valeria Luiselli’s 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 family’s 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.
‘Beautiful, pleasurable, engrossing, beguiling … brilliantly intricate and constantly surprising’ James Wood, New Yorker
‘A mould-breaking new classic … The novel truly becomes novel again in her hands – electric, elastic, alluring, new’ New York Times
'Fascinating, haunting, poetic, engrossing … an involving and richly textured book' Sunday Times
'Valeria Luiselli offers a searing indictment of America’s border policy in this roving and rather beautiful form-busting novel. Among the tale’s many ruminative ideas about absences, vanished histories and bearing witness, it offers a powerful meditation on how best to tell a story when the subject of it is missing' Daily Mail
‘Thrilling … a rollicking tale that contains within it an extremely disciplined exercise in political empathy’ Harper’s
‘Elegant and generous, funny and poignant … an extraordinary allegory’ Atlantic
‘A novelist of a rare vitality’ Ali Smith
‘Powerful, eloquent. Juxtaposing rich poetic prose with direct storytelling and brutal reality and alternative narratives with photos, documents, poems, maps and music, Luiselli explores what holds a family and society together and what pulls them apart. Superb’ Publishers Weekly
‘The novelist all your smart friends are talking about’ Broadly
‘An extraordinary new literary talent’ Daily Telegraph
‘Valeria Luiselli is a writer of formidable talent, destined to be an important voice in Latin American letters. Her vision and language are precise, and the power of her intellect is in evidence on every page’ Daniel Alarcon
‘Luiselli's writing is full of verve’ Irish Times--此文字指其他 kindle_edition 版本。

It's beautiful, original, luminous, and provocative. I'm not one to write long reviews. If a book moves me, it moves me. If it challenges me, it challenges me. Lost Children Archive did all of that. It's such a stunning read.
I'd like to get this book into everyone's hands in the country right now. We all need to think harder and act faster with compassion. This might be a novel, but the lost children? All real.
The characters are nameless, but in a postured and unrealistic way. There is 'the father', 'the son', 'the daughter', etc. There is no depth to the character development. In fact, they seemed like cut-outs to me. The gist of the story is that the husband and the wife meet on an oral history project and later marry. Each has a child from a former relationship and they are integrated into a semblance of a family. They live in New York City and for some obscure reason, the father wants to travel to Arizona to study the history of Apache indians. The wife doesn't really want to go but they pack up and leave anyway. The wife figures she can study the impact of separating immigrant children from their mothers.
If you want to read a looooonnnnngggg and boring book, this is a definite sleep inducer. How it came to be published is a mystery to me.
