Junot Diaz is a Dominican-American writer, editor, and creative writing professor. Following his visit with us in 2007, this novel won him the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Central to his work is the immigrant experience and, although all works of fiction, his novels are drawn from his own life. The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao is set in New Jersey (where the author was raised) and deals explicitly with his ancestral homeland's experience under dictator Rafael Trujillo. #HHPLibrary #30years
