The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz

What Diaz does is writing; what the rest do is waste ink and paper.

(o.k. not all the rest)

A novel about a fat boy looking to get un-virgined. Read this novel. today. sad, un-sad, real, un-real. with an energy writhing off the damn page. in an english that is english!

here's an excerpt
and here's Diaz answering questions
and here's Diaz and Danticat in conversation
