With 10 stories that move from the barrios of the Dominican Republic to the struggling urban communities of New Jersey, Junot Diaz makes his remarkable debut. Diaz's work is unflinching and strong, and these stories crackle with an electric sense of discovery. He evokes a world in which fathers are gone, mothers fight with grim determination for their families and themselves, and the next generation inherits the casual cruelty, devastating ambivalence, and knowing humor of lives circumscribed by poverty and uncertainty. In Drown, Diaz has harnessed the rhythms of anger and release, frustration and joy, to indelible effect. Download and start listening now!

    " Shorts, sortof funny, all a little depressing but more so b/c they seem real. Dominican boys are helluv randy i guess. "

    " Gritty, haunting, and unforgettable. Of Junot Diaz's three books, I saved this one-- his first book-- for last. Never imagined it would turn out to be my favorite. It makes me sad to realize that I've now read all the books he's written so far and will have to wait years for him to release another. "

    " I have, so far, only read the first story, Ysrael. I have to say, I did not see it going where it ended up. "

    " The most real short stories I've ever read. Diaz makes no apologizes for his writing style, and makes the reader feel connected whether they're from the area or not. These stories first got me into Junot Diaz years ago, and left me eagerly awaiting his next novel. "
