Product Description

Junot Diaz's debut collection of short stories 'Drown' became a contemporary classic with a unique multicultural tone that captured both the tragedy and humor of the new American dream. 'Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao' extends these themes in a novel/character study of Oscar Wao, a romantic first generation Dominican who dreams about becoming the next J.R.R. Tolkien while living with his family in New Jersey. The Wao nuclear family forms the novel's unconventional supporting cast, presenting an astonishing vision of the modern American experience spiced with an old world appreciation of superstition in Oscar's quest to overcome his family's family curse. Awarded Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, 2008.
