En estos diez entrañables relatos Junot Díaz, autor de origen Dominicano, radicado en los Estados Unidos y recientemente galardonado con el Premio Pulitzer por su novela La breve y maravillosa vida de Óscar Wao, nos regala sus cuentos con una exquisita y ligera prosa que fluye cadenciosamente como los caminos rurales de la República Dominicana o vertiginosamente como los highways del marcado paisaje urbano de New Jersey, reflejándose en cada una de las historias en las que trastocan diferentes épocas, tiempos y lugares pero siempre con una voz común: la de jóvenes que se mimetizan en las situaciones que enfrentan día a día, a veces con la voz de la amargura que les da el crecer en un segundo para sostener un hogar sin padre pero siempre con la esperanza de que este regrese con un perdón que no llegará nunca, con la ilusión de noticias de los EstadosUnidos donde el ya se olvidó de ellos y también la de una nueva voz, acompasada entre el español que convive con la tradición de su veta dominicana entremezclándose con el inglés que les dio el país que los vio nacer, en donde cohabitan con pasado y presente como un compás de espera para asomarse al futuro que podrán construir por sí mismos.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue Powell | 2/19/2014

    " Once I'd realised this was a book of short stories, and stopped trying to connect everything, I became engrossed in the lives depicted by them. Vivid and disturbing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gregory | 2/17/2014

    " Good book for anyone learning the artful craft of connected short stories (an increasingly popular genre, it seems...but one well suited for exploring the nature of family and the semi-deconstructive experience of those who have immigrated and feel caught in between worlds). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Midzor | 2/6/2014

    " Such an excellent writer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jocelyn | 1/28/2014

    " Every night that I picked up this collection of interrelated short stories, they carried me off far away place: poor, tropical barrios and urban, immigrant city-blocks. Although a lot of the subject matter was decidedly un-pretty, Diaz's language was clear, crisp, and lovely in its own right. In short, I loved this collection. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda Wood | 1/25/2014

    " Diaz is a fantastic writer but I'm not a huge fan of short stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cody | 1/23/2014

    " The book was very entertaining and I thought that papi was really messed up to his family.Overall this book was a good read and this book will keep you wondering!!!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emma | 1/23/2014

    " I loved Diaz's The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, which is what prompted me to purchase and read Drown. I found Drown to be disturbing on several levels, though, which I assume was Diaz's main intent. He has a way of describing the extreme poverty and familial dysfunction of his Dominican-American protagonists so matter-of-factly that it shocks the reader. I think Diaz's true talent, however, lies in his ability to communicate tragedy indirectly and simply, as if it is merely a facet of everyday life for his characters. "

    " pretty weird but pretty good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joline Pruitt | 1/12/2014

    " Despite overwhelming guilt, I ignored the book I was supposed to be reading for class, The Craft of Research, and read this instead. I couldn't put it down! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caleb | 12/2/2013

    " Diaz is a good writer, there's no fault about that. However, he's not what I'd call a versatile writer. The sad fact is that you can read the first four stories and just skim the rest without missing anything. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yolanda | 11/9/2013

    " What to say about this book other than it makes you think. Makes you think about the life of an immigrant, and ones choices can change the lives of the people around you for better or worse. Well written, gritty, with moments of tenderness and disillusionment I would recommend this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Carter | 8/9/2013

    " The first story I read by Junot Diaz is in this collection. LOVED rereading it and enjoyed the rest of the book, which shed a lot of light on the original story I came across in the early 90s. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marc | 7/17/2013

    " If you liked his novel (Brief Wondrous Life Of Oscar Wao ), you'll like his short stories. I think his is a fresh voice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 9/28/2012

    " The stereotypical yet classic Dominican tale with a girlfriend and baby in the US and the wife still in the DR. Nobody tells this story better than MIT's own Junot Diaz. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liza Rosas | 1/27/2012

    " Better than The Life of Oscar Wao...a great book, midway between Catcher in The Rye and Tom Sawyer and Marquez...perfect simbiosis...may be a classic in the future "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz Scheid | 1/10/2012

    " I read this book on my flight to New York and then back home. It's a wonderfully written book; much of the stories weave between time in lovely vignettes. Diaz has an amazing eye and you'll fall in love with his characters and forget that you're reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlotte | 10/3/2011

    " Beautiful writing, horrible poverty. So it goes with Junot Diaz. My favorite story was "How To Date a Brown Girl, Black Girl, White Girl or Halfie," perhaps because it had the humor that so many of the other stories lacked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda Raab | 5/5/2010

    " Few contemporary authors have as an engaging and vivid voice as Diaz. I get lost in every story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caleb Zigas | 9/14/2009

    " read it as soon as i finished Wondrous Life. Great short stories. Not as much narrative shape as the book, nor as much 'ooomph' but some really good everyday lives. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanya | 8/1/2009

    " LOVE IT! I read it my senior year in High School... it was the first time I read about my own culture. I identified with all the characters, it was a great read. "
