First Edition with full number line.Pulitzer Prize winner Junot Diaz's first book, Drown, established him as a major new writer with a dispassionate eye of a journalist and the tongue of a poet (Newsweek). Now Diaz turns his remarkable talent to the haunting, impossible power of love an obsessive love, illicit love, fading love, maternal love. On a beach in the Dominican Republic, a doomed relationship flounders. In the heat of a hospital laundry room in New Jersey, a woman does her lover's washing and thinks about his wife. In Boston, a man buys his love child, his only son, a first baseball bat and glove. At the heart of these 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.
