" Sometimes you just have to try, even if you know it won’t work."

U.S.A. / Dominican Republic / 1995

A suburb collection of short stories. This was Diaz's first published book. It deals with Dominican culture and history and the immigrant experience in America. The narrator in this book, Yunior, went on to narrate in The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. Junot Diaz is such an inspiration!
