I read This Is How You Lose Her by Junot Díaz on


The experience is 4/5, but I can’t really judge the lasting merit. It’s unlike most of my other reads, and full of extremes: punchy but distant, matter-of-fact but kind of an extended bildungsroman, full of Diaz’s deference to the task of writing ‘women’ but somewhat constructing that by plot and character, and only occasionally explicitly talking role.
