Bostonist has a nice interview with local favorite Junot Diaz. I had no idea that there were so many Diaz fans out there. I thought I would have to work pretty hard to get his book out there, but people seem to be clamoring. The reviews started rolling in this weekend, most reviewers commenting on the length of time between Drown and The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. We’re lucky enough to have a reading with Diaz this Wednesday, September 12th. He’s certainly getting himself out there. He deserves all of the accolades—this is truly a wonderful book, one of the best I’ve read this year.
