Comments from the Judges
‘While all of the books on this year’s Shortlist provided outstanding instances of what the novel can do in the twenty-first century, the Judges felt that one book in particular pushed the boundaries of contemporary fiction, while at the same time telling a compelling story. Valeria Luiselli’s Lost Children Archive manages to do many things at once. At its most basic level, it is the story of a couple and their children driving across the United States, from New York to the Southwest border with Mexico. The parents, who are sound recordists, want to make recordings of absences; she, of the children who have been lost crossing the border, he of the Native Americans who used to live in the area. However, woven into this framework are reflections on sound, on silence, a magic realist story read by the children, and artefacts, including an entire chapter made of Polaroid photographs. The result is a richly textured novel that reminds us that the novel is always capable of being pushed in new directions. As the title suggests, this is the novel as archive, as a repository of memory.’

About the Novel
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.

评委的评论
虽然今年入围名单上的所有书籍都为小说在21世纪的发展提供了杰出的范例,但评委们认为,有一本书特别推动了当代小说的发展,同时也讲述了一个引人注目的故事。瓦莱里娅-卢塞利的《失落的孩子档案》设法同时做到了许多事情。在其最基本的层面上,这是一对夫妇和他们的孩子开车穿越美国的故事,从纽约到墨西哥的西南边境。这对父母是录音师,他们想录制一些不存在的东西;她录制的是穿越边境时丢失的孩子,他录制的是曾经生活在该地区的美国原住民。然而,在这个框架中交织着对声音和沉默的反思,一个由孩子们朗读的魔幻现实主义的故事,以及人工制品,包括一整章由宝丽来照片组成。其结果是一部质地丰富的小说,提醒我们,小说总是能够被推向新的方向。正如书名所言,这是一部作为档案的小说,作为记忆的储存库。

关于这部小说
在瓦莱里娅-卢塞利的这部充满想象力的作品中,一对艺术家夫妇带着他们的两个孩子,在炎热的夏天从纽约出发,前往亚利桑那州进行公路旅行,这是美国图书奖获奖作品《告诉我结局》的后续。随着一家人向西旅行,他们之间的联系开始出现裂痕:父母之间的裂痕越来越大,孩子们几乎可以感觉到他们的脚下。通过歌曲、地图和宝丽来相机等偶发物品,孩子们试图理解他们家庭的危机和吞噬新闻的更大危机:成千上万的孩子试图越过西南边境进入美国,但在途中被扣留或迷失在沙漠中的故事。

作者简介
瓦莱里娅-路易斯利出生在墨西哥城,在韩国、南非和印度长大。她是一位广受赞誉的小说和非小说作家,著有散文集《人行道》、小说《人群中的面孔》和《我牙齿的故事》,以及最近的《告诉我结局:四十个问题的散文》。她获得了两个《洛杉矶时报》图书奖和一个美国图书奖,并两次被提名为国家书评人协会奖和柯克斯奖。她是国家图书基金会 "35岁以下5人 "的获奖者,也是艺术促进正义基金 "见证 "奖学金的获得者。她的作品出现在《纽约时报》、《格兰塔》和《麦克斯威尼》等刊物上,并被翻译成20多种语言。她住在纽约市。
