The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao - Signed - Junot Díaz

2007 - Riverhead Books, New York - First Edition
A fine first edition signed to the title page, not on a bookplate.

Winner of: The Pulitzer Prize; The National Book Critics Circle Award; The Anisfield-Wolf Book Award; The Jon Sargent, Sr. First Novel Prize; and a
Time Magazine #1 Fiction Book of the Year.

“Oscar is a sweet but disastrously overweight ghetto nerd who—from the New Jersey home he shares with his old world mother and rebellious sister—dreams of becoming the Dominican J.R.R. Tolkien and, most of all, finding love. But Oscar may never get what he wants. Blame the fukú—a curse that has haunted Oscar’s family for generations, following them on their epic journey from Santo Domingo to the USA.

Encapsulating Dominican-American history,
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao opens our eyes to an astonishing vision of the contemporary American experience and explores the endless human capacity to persevere—and risk it all—in the name of love.” [Penguin/Random House]
