Fall in Love with Junot Díaz
This Is How You Lose Her is the New York Times bestselling and National Book Award shortlisted story collection from Junot Díaz, author of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award winning novel, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, and the critically acclaimed story collection, Drown.

Tickets to this event will include a signed paperback edition of This is How You Lose Her.*

"Junot Díaz writes in an idiom so electrifying and distinct it's practically an act of aggression, at once enthralling, even erotic in its assertion of sudden intimacy [It is] a syncopated swagger-step between opacity and transparency, exclusion and inclusion, defiance and desire His prose style is so irresistible, so sheerly entertaining, it risks blinding readers to its larger offerings. Yet he weds form so ideally to content that instead of blinding us, it becomes the very lens through which we can see the joy and suffering of the signature Díaz subject: what it means to belong to a diaspora, to live out the possibilities and ambiguities of perpetual insider/outsider status."The New York Times Book Review

Born in the Dominican Republic and raised in New Jersey, Junot Díaz is currently the fiction editor at Boston Review and the Rudge and Nancy Allen Professor of Writing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In addition to the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award, Díaz is also the recipient of a MacArthur "Genius" Fellowship, PEN/Malamud Award, Dayton Literary Peace Prize, Guggenheim Fellowship, PEN/O. Henry Award, and the Anisfield-Wolf Award.
