Junot Diaz on This Is How You Lose Her

Monday, December 31, 2012

Pulitzer Prize-winner and MacArthur Fellow Junot Diaz talks about his book of stories, This Is How You Lose Her. It’s about love—obsessive love, illicit love, fading love, maternal love. At the heart of these stories is Yunior, a young hardhead whose longing for love is equaled only by his recklessness—and by the extraordinary women he loves and loses.

Correction: I am sure it was Kurtz, not Marlowe, who said, "Exterminate the brutes." Marlowe was quoting Kurtz. The sentiment should not be ascribed to Marlowe.
