About this title

Synopsis:

A must-have collector's edition of Junot Díaz’s bestseller and National Book Award finalist, brilliantly illustrated by celebrated comic artist Jaime Hernandez

A major New York Times bestseller and a finalist for the National Book Award, This Is How You Lose Her is Pulitzer Prize-winner Junot Díaz’s celebration of love in all its facets—obsessive love, illicit love, fading love, maternal love. For this gorgeous new edition, Jaime Hernandez—deemed “one of the twentieth century’s most significant comic creators”—has crafted stunning full-page illustrations, one for each story, that brilliantly capture the love-haunted spirit of the book and of the gutsy women whom irrepressible, irresistible Yunior loves and loses. A true work of art, inside and out, this is a keepsake that fans will treasure and new readers will delight in discovering.

Review:

Amazon Best Books of the Month, September 2012: This Is How You Lose Her features nine stories by Junot Diaz, who won the Pulitzer Prize for his novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao in 2008. At the center of each story is Yunior (making his third appearance in Diaz's work), a Dominican American stud who, despite his macho exterior, aches to be loved. At first blush, this slim volume lacks the ambition and scope of Oscar Wao, a condensed pop-culture epic. But Diaz has done an extraordinary thing here: He has taken Yunior's heart and battered it every which way to show how love--romantic, physical, or familial--can affect even the most masculine character. The final story, "The Cheater's Guide to Love," features the collection's stickiest line: "The half-life of love is forever." Diaz compares heartbreak to radiation, its strength decaying exponentially over time. You can bury it underground and try to forget about it, but it never goes away entirely. --Kevin Nguyen
