Summary

Winner of the California Book Award for FictionA Los Angeles TimesBestsellerA New York Times Book ReviewNotable Book of the YearA Los Angeles TimesBest Book of 2011A San Francisco ChronicleBest Book of 2011A Boston GlobeBest Fiction Book of 2011 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. The Barbarian Nurseriesis a masterful tale of contemporary Los Angeles, a novel as alive as the city itself.
