'An absolute treat slangily inventive, infectiously exuberant stories about love and infidelity among the Dominican-American community in New Jersey.' --Justine Jordan, The Guardian Books of the Year
'Díaz's impressive collection of short stories charts the end of love from first doubts, through the dreamlike state of splitting up, to the regret and suffering that follows. Centred around his frequent protagonist, Yunior, Díaz's stories portray love as both an all-encompassing force and a fatally compromised state.' --George Pendle, Financial Times Books of the Year --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
A new collection from Junot Diaz, Pulitzer Prize winner and bestselling author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, about the haunting, impossible power of love.
