2012 book 247

Junot Diaz's This Is How You Lose Her
Normally I don't read short stories--they're just too darn SHORT--but I love Diaz, and heard this was a novel in stories, and I make exceptions for those. And for the most part that's true--all but one of the stories are about Yunior (narrator of Oscar Wao) and the women in his life (primarily the women he cheated on, but others too).  These stories are great, of course, but I just wish there was more meat to everything. I need another Diaz novel! A-/B+.

PS. Diaz is speaking at Motorco next Thursday!
