The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
It’s been five years since Junot Díaz’s first novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and more than 15 since his first book of short stories Drown. Oscar Wao was a literary sensation upon its release in 2007, topping several year-end best lists and racking up major prizes, including the Pulitzer.
Díaz returns to the short story form and focuses on the topic of love in This Is How You Lose Her, scheduled for a Sept. 11 release. A description from Riverhead books:
