Pultizer Prize Winner Junot Diaz Pens Book of Short Stories

After receiving the Pulitzer prize for his 2007 novel, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, the author’s second book of short stories will arrive in stores this September according to his publisher, Riverhead. 

The book entitled, This is How You Lose Her, will focus on love stories, especially the heart breaking ones.  According to the author the stories, “Recall the echoes that intimacy leaves behind, even where we thought we did not care.”

Díaz’s first selection of short stories, Drown, was published in 1996.  This work was thought to have foreshadowed much of his 2007 award winning novel.
