Junot Diaz

Junot Diaz's first novel, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, was a literary sensation.  With more than 100-million copies in print, the story spent more than 100 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and won a host of major awards, including the Pulitzer Prize.  In his highly acclaimed short story collection, This is How You Lose Her (Riverhead, $16.00), now available in paperback, he presents the irrepressible, irresistible Yunior, a young hardhead whose longing for love is equaled only by his recklessness—and by the extraordinary women he loves and loses. Diaz is the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, PEN/Malamud Award, Dayton Literary Peace Prize, Guggenheim Fellowship and PEN/O. Henry Award, among other accolades.
