BOOK OF THE MONTH: THIS IS HOW YOU LOSE HER by Junot Diaz

“The half-life of love is forever”



Pulitzer Prize-winner Junot Díaz turns his remarkable talent to the haunting, impossible power of love – obsessive love, illicit love, fading love, maternal love.

At the heart of this collection of short stories is the irrepressible, irresistible Yunior, a young hardhead whose longing for love is equaled only by his recklessness--and by the extraordinary women he loves and loses: artistic Alma; the aging Miss Lora; Magdalena, who thinks all Dominican men are cheaters; and the love of his life, whose heartbreak ultimately becomes his own.

Read it, and let us know what you think about the book, about Yunior, about love, about a happy ending.
