    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.

    josh says: "Good collection of short stories"
    "Love and Self Loathing"

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

    You won me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of This Is How You Lose Her?

    When he actually says "this is how you lose her..."


    What does Junot Díaz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice is so identifiable.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh out loud many times. It made me sick. It made me feel like I was actually inside the mind of every bad boyfriend I had in NYc. And it made me love Diaz even more than I did after Oscar Wao.
