Valeria Luiselli describes herself as a documentarian who fictionalizes. She says her imagination is shaped by the lives around her, and she brings literature into the world. Lost Children Archive tells the story of a family by combining the American road trip subgenre with the Latin American tradition of an inward journey. A lucid, generous, and complex novel; a record of our time.
