Published: Knopf - February 12th, 2019

A book for our times. Luiselli shows how callousness toward other cultures erodes our own. A family of four leaves NYC with 7 boxes of poems, documents, maps and music in search of Geronimo and the last Apaches (father's quest) and ins search of two lost children who have runaway from a deportation center at the Mexican border (mother's quest). The road trip pulls the couple apart while the son and daughter are intent upon finding the lost children. Creative storytelling that transcends the usual road trip story.
