The Brief Wondrous Life Of Oscar Wao

This month, Junot Diaz published a novel called The Brief Wondrous Life Of Oscar Wao, based on his short story from 2000.

I haven't read the book yet, but the story it's based on is one of my favorite short stories of all time. It's funny, nerdy, and moving, with a heartbreaking and transcendent ending that's like a punch in the gut.

LISTEN: I post a lot of links, but this one is different. I'm begging you to read this. It's long--fifteen pages--but it reads really quickly. Please enjoy this, one of my favorite things in the world:
