"This stunning collection of stories offers an unsentimental glimpse of life among the immigrants from the Dominican Republic-and other front-line reports on the ambivalent promise of the American dream-by an eloquent and original writer who describes more than physical dislocation in conveying the price that is paid forleaving culture and homeland behind."--San Francisco Chronicle. Junot Diaz's stories are as vibrant, tough, unexotic, and beautiful as their settings-Santa Domingo, Dominican. Neuva York, the immigrant neighborhoods of industrial New Jersey with their gorgeously polluted skyscapes. Places and voices new to our literature yet classically American: coming-of-age stories full of wild humor, intelligence, rage, and piercing tenderness. And this is just the beginning. Diaz is going to be a giant of American prose.-Francisco Goldman. Ever since Diaz began publishing short stories in venues as prestigious as The New Yorker, he has been touted as a major new talent, and his debut collection affirms this claim. Born and raised in Santo Domingo, Diaz uses the contrast between his island homeland and life in New York City and New Jersey as a fulcrum for his trenchant tales. His young male narrators are teetering into precarious adolescence. For these sons of harsh or absent fathers and bone-weary, stoic mothers, life is an unrelenting hustle. In Santo Domingo, they are sent to stay with relatives when the food runs out at home; in the States, shoplifting and drugdealing supply material necessities and a bit ofa thrill in an otherwise exhausting and frustrating existence. There is little affection, sex is destructive, conversation strained, and even the brilliant beauty of a sunset is tainted, its colors the product of pollutants.

Junot is a god. His words snap off the page. Like the description says, he's "unsentimental"--he doesn't have to find a larger meaning to all the stories and the moments, we do. Papi as a character is so intense and I had so much hatred directed toward him. He really fueled the book, I thought--was what messed up Yunior's life in a way.

In some ways, I remember being disappointed with Oscar Wao for the same reason I was disappointed with Drown--there was no actual meaning that I could pick up. As personal and close as I got to the narration, I still felt removed from the significance of the stories. The only place where I got some meaning, retrieved some emotional depth, was at the very very ending, the last two or three pages.

Amazing writing. ( )

4.3 A wonderful first book full of what I like about Diaz. That is, a forceful, singular voice for the US-DR diaspora. There is nothing not to like. Worth it if you read [b: Oscar Wao|6979989|The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao|Junot Díaz|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1255571634s/6979989.jpg|3281466] first and want more. ( )

It's not entirely clear if this collection of short stories is narrated by the same character, Yunior, or not. Yunior appears in Diaz's later book The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, and it seems unlikely that the Yunior of Brief and Wondrous Life who goes to Rutgers is really the same Yunior who seemingly spends years committing petty theft, dealing and doing drugs, and accumulating abusive/abused girlfriends. Since I know that Diaz likes to write about the character, I'm going to assume an infinity of alternate universe Yuniors.

The best parts are the parts about Yunior's childhood, first growing up in poverty in the Dominican Republic, and then in the Washington Heights in New York. The story about Yunior's father, who is a narcissistic jerk but wonderfully human, is truly incredible. Less successful are the stories of adult Yunior, which tend to blend together after a while in their sameness.

This anthology won't have quite the same kick if you haven't read The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, which was the third book I've ever thrown across the room (the first being the fifth Harry Potter book when Sirius died, and the second being A Case of Exploding Mangos, which everyone should also read). It's a funny, witty, touching book chock-full of fantasy and sci-fi references, and if sheds more insight on Yunior and where he will end up eventually. ( )

These stories are compiled in such a way that reading them had that beautiful lyrical quality of a dream, while still continually bashing into the poignant harsh realities of poverty and abuse. ( )
