A collection of stories that capture love and the Dominican-American experience in brilliantly vibrant, emotive and funny prose. (Harpers Bazaar)
This Is How You Lose Her, is almost hot on the heels of the novel; and it is more than worth the wait ... This Is How You Lose Her is a series of exquisite off-white miniatures ... This Is How You Lose Her is tender in both senses of the word. It has a capacity for warmth, for empathetic engagement with even the weakest and most morally lackadaisical of individuals ... This Is How You Lose Her complements The Brief And Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and only whets the appetite all the more for whichever novel comes next from Junot Díaz. (Scotsman)
Each sentence ripples with throwaway brilliance ... I raced through these stories, longing to start back all over again, not wanting the relationship to end. This is, no doubt about it, how it should be done. (bookoxygen.com)
Junot Díaz's short story collection is so sharp, so bawdy, so raw with emotion, and so steeped in the lingo and rhythms of working-class Latino life that it makes most writing that crosses the Atlantic seem hopelessly desiccated by by comparison ... [Diaz] has the ability not only to make you laugh, but to wince with pain, to feel that you're being offered tender X-rays into social worlds that are too often ignored by the gatekeepers of mass media (Telegraph) --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
This Is How You Lose Her is a beautifully illustrated collector's edition of Junot Diaz's new collection about the haunting, impossible power of love. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.See all Product Description
