Lost Children Archive by Valeria Luiselli has won the world’s most lucrative prize for a novel published in English.

The Dublin Literary Award confers upon its victor not just glory, but also €100,000 (about $122,100).

Libraries around the world nominate the contenders; Luiselli owes her nod to Biblioteca Vila De Gràcia in Barcelona, Spain.

The novel was published in 2019, landed on several award longlists, and won the 2020 Rathbones Folio Prize and the 2020 Andrew Carnegie Medal for fiction.

Lost Children Archive — Luiselli’s third novel overall and first in English — combines one family’s road trip with the journey of thousands of migrant children trying to reach the United States.
