Is there anything that plagues the human animal more than love?
In Pulitzer Prize–winning writer Junot Díaz‘s work the answer is no. Platonic love, romantic love, familial love. Its charms and chaos give Díaz’s fiction–The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and This Is How You Lose Her–a verve, vitality, and readability that have galvanized audiences and critics for more than a decade. Díaz’s characters are loud and rambunctious, brave, lovable, and always in-your-face.
For Diaz, born in the Dominican Republic and raised in New Jersey, his cultural backgrounds are a calling and an inspiration.
Join him for a far-reaching conversation about his remarkable work and career.
