Books by Junot Diaz

  • The Cheater's Guide to Love

    Junot Diaz

    Product Code: CBHON
    Paperback
    You try every trick in the book to keep her. You write her letters. You drive her to work. You quote Neruda [. . .] You try it all, but one day she will simply sit up in bed and say, No more. In Yunior, a Dominican-American writer and Harvard professor, Junot Diaz has created an irresistibly erratic protagonist, who sweeps you up in the poetic energy of his speech as he rehearses a broad repertoire of bad behaviour. Originally the climactic tale in the chain-linked This is How You Lose Her, 'The Cheater's Guide to Love' is a superb standalone song of decadence and experience.

  • This Is How You Lose Her

    Junot Diaz

    Product Code: AHMND
    Paperback
    Junot Diaz's new collection, This Is How You Lose Her, is a collection of linked narratives about love - passionate love, illicit love, dying love, maternal love - told through the lives of New Jersey Dominicans, as they struggle to find a point where their two worlds meet.

    In prose that is endlessly energetic and inventive, tender and funny, it lays bare the infinite longing and inevitable weaknesses of the human heart.

    Most of all, these stories remind us that the habit of passion always triumphs over experience and that 'love, when it hits us for real, has a half-life of forever'.

    This book has been hand-picked for the Book People's FaberShop, in partnership with Faber & Faber.

  • The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

    Junot Diaz

    Product Code: ACFBP
    Audio
    Author Junot Diaz won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao" - a novel that took him 11 years to complete. Things have never been easy for Oscar. A ghetto nerd living with his Dominican family in New Jersey, he's sweet but disastrously overweight. He dreams of becoming the next J R R Tolkien and he keeps falling hopelessly in love. Poor Oscar may never get what he wants, thanks to the Fuku - the curse that has haunted his family for generations. With dazzling energy and insight Diaz immerses us in the tumultuous lives of Oscar; his runaway sister Lola; their beautiful mother Belicia; and in the family's uproarious journey from the Dominican Republic to the US and back. Rendered with uncommon warmth and humour, "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao" is a literary triumph that confirms Junot Diaz as one of the most exciting writers of our time. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60 per cent of the author's work and as low as 30 per cent with characters and plotlines removed.
