Author Bio
Junot Diaz
When he was 8 years old, Junot Diaz emigrated from the Dominican Republic to New Jersey, where he grew up in poverty. After graduating from Cornell University, he published a collection of short stories, DROWN (1996), to critical acclaim. It would be 11 more years before Diaz's debut novel appeared, but it was time well spent. THE BRIEF WONDROUS LIFE OF OSCAR WAO (2007) received tremendous praise and won the Pulitzer Prize for Literature.


"The eleven stories...vividly evoke Dìaz's hardscrabble youth in the Dominican Republic and New Jersey....Dìaz has the dispassionate eye of a journalist and the tongue of a poet..." 01/15/1996

Washington Post Book World
"Diaz's literary voice is unique, vibrant and poetic." - Patricia Elam Ruff 11/03/1996

Los Angeles Times Book Review
"What writers bring first is the news; it takes longer to refine it into art. Depicting his fellow Dominicans in their struggling transit between island poverty and a laborious, denaturing effort to make their way here, Junot Diaz is in a transit of his own between news and art....The best stories in 'Drown' are far more than reportage." - Richard Eder 09/01/1996

Kirkus Reviews
"Díaz's spare style and narrative poise make for some disturbing fiction, full of casual violence and indifferent morality. A debut calculated to raise some eyebrows." 10/01/1996

New Republic
"These stories do so much so well, and are so warily delicate, that it is only when one has finished 'Drown' that one realizes, with a shock, that an entire world has moved by with not one moment of grand pathos, no moment of exultation, no aesthetic or visionary aeration, no metaphysical reckoning, no stylistic lavishness or verbal plenty, no moment of moral expansion. Everything is so stripped down and hidden that the stories begin to be about their absences....The language is canny and taut, but it dares just enough and not too much." - James Wood 12/16/1996

Times Literary Supplement
"'Drown' is a first collection of short stories that hits as hard as a surprise punch....[They] attest to his considerable gifts for conjuring disparate worlds through a merging of convey piercing images of loss and pain." - Phyllis Richardson 10/25/1996

Literary Review
"In these deceptively simple stories, Diaz displays an enviably accomplished style: understated and detached, yet evocative and compelling, especially in his ability to lay bare the hearts of his characters. There is a delicate clarity here, even in his portrayal of the seamier sides of human nature." - A. D. Reid November 1996
