Pulitzer Prize-winner Junot Diaz's first book, Drown, established him as a major new writer. His first novel, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, was named #1 Fiction Book of the Year'' by Time magazine. NowDiaz turns his remarkable talent to the haunting, impossible power of love - obsessive love, illicit love, fading love, maternal love. On a beach in the Dominican Republic, a doomed relationship flounders. In the heat of a hospital laundry room in New Jersey, 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 forlove is equaled only by his recklessness - and by the extraordinary women he loves and loses.
