This Is How You Lose Her

Junot Díaz, read by the author. Penguin Audio, unabridged, five CDs, 5.25 hrs., $29.95 ISBN 978-1-61176-110-8
Pulitzer Prize–winner Díaz delivers a collection of linked short stories that focus on love and the challenges it brings Dominican men grappling with their heritage, socioeconomic status, the legacy of machismo, and modern women. As a reader, Díaz delivers a winning performance; his narration is clear, nuanced, and true to the text, his voice as engaging and confident as that of any professional narrator. Díaz’s reading ably captures the emotional states of his characters, his voice conveying all the humor, sorrow, and anger of the prose. Additionally, he lends his characters a host of subtle accents and dialects—each one distinct and appropriate to their background. This is a must listen for fans of the short story. A Riverhead hardcover. (Sept.)
