    The stories in This Is How You Lose Her, by turns hilarious and devastating, raucous and tender, lay bare the infinite longing and inevitable weaknesses of our all-too-human hearts. They capture the heat of new passion, the recklessness with which we betray what we most treasure, and the torture we go through - "the begging, the crawling over glass, the crying" - to try to mend what we've broken beyond repair. They recall the echoes that intimacy leaves behind, even where we thought we did not care.

    What made the experience of listening to This Is How You Lose Her the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed the fact that this was read by the author.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters, particularly Yunior, had such an authentic voice. He is flawed and relatable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where Elvis finds out that the son he thought was his, was not.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Diaz creates fascinating characters with strong voices. He is particularly adept at capturing heart wrenching emotions behind the heavy masks of his multidimensional characters.
