Book Nook: This is How You Lose Her, by Junot Diaz
It has been five long years since Junot Diaz published his fabulous novel "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao." If you have read that book then you know that near the end of it we learned that Oscar's story was actually being told by his friend Yunior.
Now Yunior is back as the lead character in a collection of stories called "This is How You Lose Her." Yunior is a writer and an incorrigible player. Yunior certainly does love the ladies. And he has no sense of shame.
In this interview Junot Diaz provides some rare glimpses into his creative process.
