On a beach in the Dominican Republic a doomed relationship flounders In the heat of a hospital laundry room in New Jersey a woman does her lover’s washing and thinks about his wife In Boston a man buys his love child his only son a first baseball bat and glove At the heart of these stories is the This is a collection of short stories about Yunior Yunior is a louse All the men in his life are serial cheaters from his father to his brother to his best friend Yes there is a pitch that this is part of the Dominican Culture but frankly I can speak with women friends of mine from France Spain Italy Russia Germany and England and every single one of them knows this guy or has dated this clown He screws around on women and when he is caught and discarded there is great chest thumping and hair tearing and he learnsnothingMr Diaz provides imagery fireworks great use of language flying sentences created a real louse of a character Yunior who keeps you reading because well it's like watching a bad driver wreck his same car in the same way 5 or six timesMy big problem with this book is that is left me unmoved and oddly unfeeling considering the subject matter Took me a while to figure it outThere is not one fully drawn women character in any of these stories In fact there is one story that took me until page six to figure out it was supposed to be a female character The women are merely devices to allow Yunior to react to something Even he Mr Diaz on his website talks about his inability to create female characters he's male Had the writer gotten past this as many male writers do he coud have opened up the story to a real look at this explosive topic

This is How You Lose HerIrrepressible irresistible Yunior a young hardhead whose longing for love is eualed only by his recklessness and by the extraordinary women he loves and loses artistic Alma; the aging Miss Lora; Magdalena who thinks all Dominican men are cheaters; and the love of his life whose heartbreak ultimately This Is How You Lose Her is another blast of ingenious storytelling from the talented Junot Diaz In 1997 he walloped the literary landscape and established his name as a meteoric presence with Drown a collection of gritty stories centering on Dominican American immigrants and culture Not until a decade later did he finish his next work the acclaimed novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao which recounts in ecstatic prose the tragedies that befall a first generation Dominican American family With this collection of stories Diaz continues to explore his trademark themes of hardship loss failure and resilience in the lives of Dominican American characters Each of the stories focuses on individuals confronting tough times and the conseuences of their choices especially in regards to love and relationships The central figure and narrator for several of the pieces is the incomparable Yunior His voice ranks among the most distinctive and inimitable in modern literature Through his perspective Diaz gives us an uncensored glimpse into the lives of a community of men and women battling through the riotous terrain of love from both the emotional and carnal side Diaz does not hold back with his oftentimes salacious details of love He navigates the perils of sex and relationships with complete honesty and openness He is a genius of language most notably with the peerless voice of Yunior Diaz’s literary abilities allow him to employ a poetical style that places him in a league of his own His prose is like wildfire tearing through everything and leaving you unsettled With some of America’s literary giants such as Morrison McCarthy and Doctorow now in the twilight of their careers I feel comfortable with Diaz blazing the trail for the next generation of great writers to follow We can only hope Diaz continues to produce work in the decades ahead that resonates with the same uproarious energy for life as he does in This Is How You Lose Her I can hardly wait for his next work
