Jeanine Cummins' novel, "American Dirt" hit the proverbial jackpot when it received the Oprah bump, selected as a 2020 Book Club read.

This “great American novel” follows Lydia and her son on the run from a vengeful drug cartel, on their journey towards safety. Her quiet suburban life as a bookseller unravels when she unwittingly befriends the leader of the improbably named drug cartel los jardineros (the gardeners). Without knowing who he is, she befriends him, until her journalist husband uncovers who her new friend really is. When his exposé piece results in the suicide of the boss’s daughter, retaliation comes in the form of the massacre of Lydia’s family at a quinceañera.

Lydia takes her son and as much as she can shove into an overnight bag, and flees. She can’t trust the police to keep them safe – too many of them are on the cartel’s payroll. She can’t take the family car – it’s too recognisable, and the cartel has left a note on it, too. She has no choice but to undertake a perilous journey, on foot and on bus and by train, to reach “el norte”, the United States, to seek asylum with her son.

Cummins undertook several years of research, travelling through Mexico and interviewing locals, migrants, border officials, and everyone else with a stake in the story. She insists that all of the concrete information relayed through the story – such as the fact that Mexico’s unsolved crime rate exceeds 90% – was accurate at the time of writing.Her intent is to form a “bridge”, she says, whereby non-Mexican audiences might come to a new empathic understanding of the migrant experience.

On the other hand, critics have derided the author, Jeanine Cummins, for misrepresenting cultures and experiences that are not her own, and proliferating “trauma porn”.

Over 120 writers, including Mexico’s leading novelist Valeria Luiselli called on Oprah’s book club (the gatekeeper to ‘making it’) to boycott the novel. Accusations of racism, cultural appropriation have flown around. The problems seem to stem from whether Cummins, a self-identifying white woman with Puerto Rican roots, has the right to tell the story of America’s Latin American migrants, as well as the quality of the book, and accusations of making profit from other people’s suffering.

American Dirt is already shaping up to be the most divisive book of the year.
