YOU ARE WHAT YOU READ
Erin is revisiting an old friend in a new collection. Oh. And there is sighing going on. ”I am currently reading Junot Diaz’s This is How You Lose Her. Readers who are familiar with the character Yunior from Diaz’s previous work will be reacquainted with him in this collection of nine short stories. Dealing with his Dominican identity and wrestling with his machismo exterior, Yunior describes his triumphs and setbacks in pursuing romantic relationships. There are some serious sigh-worthy lines in this one. My favorite so far? ‘And that’s when I know it’s over. As soon as you start thinking about the beginning, it’s the end.’ Sigh.”
