"Electrifying." –The New York Times Book Review
“Exhibits the potent blend of literary eloquence and street cred that earned him a Pulitzer Prize… Díaz’s prose is vulgar, brave, and poetic.” –O Magazine
From the award-winning author, a stunning collection that celebrates the haunting, impossible power of love.
On a beach in the Dominican Republic, a doomed relationship flounders. In a New Jersey laundry room, a woman does her lover’s washing and thinks about his wife. In Boston, a man buys his love child, his only son, a first baseball bat and glove. At the heart of these stories is the irrepressible, irresistible Yunior, a young hardhead whose longing for love is equaled only by his recklessness--and by the extraordinary women he loves and loses.
In prose that is endlessly energetic, inventive, tender, and funny, these stories lay bare the infinite longing and inevitable weakness of the human heart. They remind us that passion always triumphs over experience, and that “the half-life of love is forever.”

This is How You Lose Her
Horrible. An entire book club just called a " cease and desist" on reading one more page of this trash. We are all amazed by the good reviews. Of the millions of great reads out there, this is not worth your time.
Junot has a fascinating book here just as his previous book! You will definately enjoy reading about Yunior and find out Junot has such a fascinating literary style like none other!
The best books can be confessions
Achingly honest. Gives one solace that however screwed up you are, and how messed up your life is, you are not alone. Never sappy. Always true. But, is it fiction? I guess nothing is ever more true than fiction. Maybe because it allows the writer to hide just enough to reveal everything. I could read this every day.
