Overview
Winner of the California Book Award for Fiction
A "Los Angeles Times" Bestseller Best Book of the Year Lists
"The New York Times Book Review" - "Los Angeles Times"
"San Francisco Chronicle" - "The Boston Globe"
Scott and Maureen Torres-Thompson have always relied on others to run their Orange County home. But when bad investments crater their bank account, it all comes down to Araceli: their somewhat prickly Mexican maid. One night, an argument between the couple turns physical, and a misunderstanding leaves the children in Araceli's care. Their parents unreachable, she takes them to central Los Angeles in the hopes of finding Scott's estranged Mexican father---an earnest quest that soon becomes a colossal misadventure, with consequences that ripple through every strata of the sprawling city. Hector Tobar's "The Barbarian Nurseries" is a masterful tale of contemporary Los Angeles, a novel as alive as the city itself.
