"The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao" is Junot Díaz’s long awaited and highly acclaimed first novel, published eleven years after Junot’s short story collection "Drown".

The Kirkus Review said the book has “an ironic, confiding, exuberant voice…a compelling, sex-fuelled, twenty-first century tragi-comedy with a magical twist.” The hero, according to the author himself, is an “overweight immigrant nerd who can’t get laid." Díaz recently won the National Book Critics Circle Award 2008 for Fiction.

Chair: Guy Somerset.
