    Default Any Read this yet?

    The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao: Junot Diaz: 9781594483295: Amazon.com: Books

    Friend of mine just read it. About a guy living in NYC who want to be a famous Dominican author. Apparently a lot of the book mentions the DR in the time of Trujillo.. It's on my list, but it may take a while to get to.

    Read "This is how you lose her" as well, I'd say. Just finished my copy (which, btw, has Junot Díaz signature in it and a short greeting to me - in case any of you wondered). LOL. Anywhu, great writer, but not so very productive, unfortunately. The world needs more of his work, IMO.
