Meet Author Junot Díaz in New York City

Barnes & Noble at Union Square in New York City will host Dominican author, Junot Díaz, for an event to promote his latest book; This Is How You Lose Her.
Díaz turns his remarkable talent to the haunting, impossible power of love – 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.
