4.0 Rereading Junot Díaz in light of recent events - the cycle of abuse harms us all

5.0 A perfect collection
What can I say about Junot Diaz's This Is How You Lose Her except that it's absolute perfection? Not a single boring story to be found here, and to list my favorite stories would be pointless, as I'd most likely list every single one in the collection. If you've read his previous collection, Drown...
