    Årets store amerikanske læseoplevelse.Lydia driver en boghandel i den mexicanske by Acapulco. En dag kommer en mand ind og køber to af hendes favoritbøger. Hvad Lydia ikke ved, er, at han også er leder af et narkokartel, at hendes egen mand er ved at skrive en større artikel om netop ham og de konsekvenser mødet får for Lydia og hendes familie. Jordens salt er en bog, du aldrig glemmer. En besættende, tankevækkende og vigtig historie om en mor og hendes søn. Lydia har altid været en passioneret bogelsker. Hendes yndlingsbøger gennem tiden står på hylderne i hendes butik, selvom hun godt ved, at der kun sjældent er nogen, der køber dem. Men en dag kommer en kunde hen til disken med hele to af hendes favoritbøger. Javier. Han er charmerende og interessant. Han bliver en ven, hun kan tale med om litteratur og livet. Hvad Lydia ikke ved, er, at han også er leder af et narkokartel, og at hendes egen mand er ved at skrive en større artikel om netop ham. Det kommer til at få voldsomme konsekvenser for Lydia og hendes familie. Mor og søn må flygte fra deres komfortable liv og rejse mod nord. En rejse, de deler med en strøm af andre migranter, der drager mod det forjættede land USA, på flugt fra nogen eller noget. "Historien er mesterligt komponeret af tidløse elementer: sorgens mareridtsagtige logik, værdien af medmenneskelighed og den kærlighed, der kan drive os til det, der ellers var utænkeligt. Jeanine Cummins beviser, at fiktion kan være bevidsthedsudvidende og gøre os til bedre mennesker." Time Jeanine Cummins er født i Spanien og vokset op i Maryland i USA. Hendes første bog A Rip in Heaven udkom i 2004 og er et memoir baseret på hendes egen families tragiske historie. Jordens salt er hendes fjerde bog. Hun bor i dag i New York med sin familie.

    #1 New York Times Bestseller OPRAH'S BOOK CLUB PICK"e;Extraordinary."e;-Stephen King"e;This book is not simply the great American novel; it's the great novel of las Americas. It's the great world novel! This is the international story of our times. Masterful."e;-Sandra CisnerosTambien de este lado hay suenos. On this side too, there are dreams.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 a few 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 listeners utterly changed. It is a literary achievement filled with poignancy, drama, and humanity. It is one of the most important books for our times.Already being hailed as "e;a Grapes of Wrath for our times"e; and "e;a new American classic,"e; Jeanine Cummins's American Dirt is a rare exploration into the inner hearts of people willing to sacrifice everything for a glimmer of hope."e;Narrator Yareli Arizmendi illuminates the humanity and individuality of Latin American migrants as they flee toward refuge in the North..The account of Lydia and Luca's travails, including terrifying rides atop Mexico's freight trains, is utterly compelling. But it is Arizmendi's voicing of Lydia, so full of fierce tenderness, that will stay with listeners after the story's close."e;-AudioFile Magazine

    Lydia Quixano Perez traieste in orasul mexican Acapulco si este proprietara unei mici librarii. Are un fiu in varsta de opt ani, Luca, lumina ochilor ei, si un sot minunat, jurnalist de profesie. Si cu toate ca realitatea dura a cartelurilor incepe sa-si faca simtita prezenta, viata Lydiei este, in principiu, una destul de confortabila. Desi stie ca nu se vor vinde, Lydia aduce in librarie si o parte dintre cartile ei favorite. Iar intr-o buna zi, un barbat intra in magazin si alege cateva carti, printre care si doua dintre preferatele ei. Javier este un erudit si un barbat fermecator. Si, ceea ce Lydia nu stie, este liderul celui mai nou cartel al drogurilor din oras. Dupa ce sotul ei publica un articol in care vorbeste fara ocolisuri despre proaspatul jefe, viata intregii familii se va schimba radical. Silita sa fuga din oras in urma asasinarii sotului si a rudelor sale, Lydia calatoreste impreuna cu fiul ei cu faimosul tren La Bestia spre nord, catre Statele Unite, acolo unde Javier nu-i poate gasi. Scrisa cu maiestrie, sfasietoare si incarcata de o profunda umanitate, Pamant american este acel gen de carte care te marcheaza si te schimba fundamental, unul dintre cele mai importante romane contemporane. Pamant american este un roman extraordinar, un spectacol perfect echilibrat, cu teroarea de o parte si iubirea de cealalta... Scriitura este impecabila, iar povestea nu dezamageste in nici un punct. Superb."e; STEPHEN KING
