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.'

'An absolute treat slangily inventive, infectiously exuberant stories about love and infidelity among the Dominican-American community in New Jersey.' --Justine Jordan, The Guardian Books of the Year
'Díaz's impressive collection of short stories charts the end of love from first doubts, through the dreamlike state of splitting up, to the regret and suffering that follows. Centred around his frequent protagonist, Yunior, Díaz's stories portray love as both an all-encompassing force and a fatally compromised state.' --George Pendle, Financial Times Books of the YearBook Description:
A new collection from Junot Diaz, Pulitzer Prize winner and bestselling author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, about the haunting, impossible power of love.
