“Literary deejay Diaz spins magical realism, anime, Tolkien, and minority-literature-as-ethnography into a remix of the immigrant's tale from the hands of a master. This is the smartest, funniest, and sharpest novel of the year and confirms his virtuosic ability to communicate Dominican-American experience with vibrancy and honesty.”
— LaTissia Mitchell, Shaman Drum Bookshop, Ann Arbor, MI


Winner of both the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, the most talked about--and praised--smash hit of 2007 follows the adventures of a sweet but disastrously overweight ghetto nerd plagued by a family curse.
