Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

"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 for leaving culture and homeland behind".--"San Francisco Chronicle".


Review:

"The eleven stories...vividly evoke Džaz's hardscrabble youth in the Dominican Republic and New Jersey....Džaz has the dispassionate eye of a journalist and the tongue of a poet..."

Unknown, Newsweek, 01/15/1996

Review:

"Like Raymond Carver, one of his apparent influences, Mr. Diaz transfigures disorder with a rigorous sense of form. He whips story after story into shape by setting up parallel scenes."

David Gates, New York Times Book Review, 09/29/1996

Book Description: Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 1997. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Riverhead Trade. 204 x 132 mm. Brand New Book. 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 for leaving 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 GoldmanEver 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 of a 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. Keep your eye on Diaz; his first novel is on the way. --Booklist. Bookseller Inventory # LVN9781573226066
