Diaz Wins

Junot Picks Up the Pulitzer

I'm ashamed to say that Junot Diaz's Pulitzer-winning novel (announced yesterday), "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao," has been sitting on my shelf, unread. OK, to be accurate, it's been sitting in my stack of books, along with Diaz's earlier collection, "Drown," unread.

I'll have to get to it soon, or next. But I think both of Diaz's books are easy recommendations. I've heard many good things about both, and have read several of his short stories. Not to mention, "Oscar Wao" also won the Tournament of Books a couple of weeks ago.

OK, I just mentioned it.
