Junot Diaz “The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao”
September 9th, 2007
Meet Oscar Wao, a chubby fanboy nerd who lives in New Jersey with his mother and his sister. Oscar’s a first-generation Dominican-American, dreaming of being a sci-fi author but dealing in the meantime with the challenges of youth, including the longing for a romance.
In the debut novel by Junot Diaz, called “The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao,” we come to understand Oscar not by meeting him or hearing directly from him, but through those who know him.
