    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.

    If you could sum up This Is How You Lose Her in three words, what would they be?

    Brilliantly written moving


    What did you like best about this story?

    The humanity and richness of each of his characters.


    What about Junot Díaz’s performance did you like?

    He didn't perform. He read his story as if he was telling you about it. One on one.


    If you could take any character from This Is How You Lose Her out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The narrator, because he looks at life all around him, (not just at his own belly button), with understanding and compassion.You can feel the icy, treacherous shards of ice under the feet. The Promised Land comes at great cost, if it comes at all.

    I read to learn, and in his cool, wry way Diaz delivers on every page.


    Any additional comments?

    I send this book over and over as a thank you note. Also, it is wonderful because when have to, you can pick it up and put it down. There is no catch up time. You hear his voice and you are right there.
