Scarce SIGNED copy of the 1st Spanish Edition/1st Printing hardcover in Very Good condition. Signed by Junot Diaz in our presence on the title page without inscription at a recent reading and signing event in Los Angeles, California. The book is square and sound. Spotless inside with no creases, marks or damage to pages. The book's only flaws are that the corners are just barely bumped at the tips and there is just the faintest possible soiling to covers (hardly visible except upon very close inspection). A very nice copy of Diaz's very fine novel, it will be packed in bubble-wrap and shipped in a sturdy box to ensure safe delivery. Bookseller Inventory # ABH265
Synopsis: Las tribulaciones de un joven latino en Nueva Jersey. La esperada novela de Junot Díaz. La vida nunca ha sido fácil para Oscar Wao, un dominicano dulce, obeso y algo desastroso que vive con su madre y su hermana en un gueto de Nueva Jersey. Oscar sueña con convertirse en un J.R.R. Tolkien dominicano y, por encima de todo, con encontrar el amor de su vida. Pero puede que nunca alcance sus metas debido a una extraña maldición presente en su familia desde hace generaciones; enviando a los Wao a prisión, predisponiéndolos a accidentes trágicos y, ante todo, al desamor. Después del éxito internacional de Los Boys (Mondadori, 1996), Junot Díaz recrea, con humor, la experiencia de los dominicanos en Estados Unidos y la capacidad de perseverar en medio del desengaño amoroso y la pérdida.
