Ok, I’ve been stanning on this book for a while, and I just couldn’t shake how deeply it touched me. So I linked up with my homegirl Erika and we had a lengthy heart-to-heart about the emotions this book took us through: tears, passion, frustration. Something about the characters and the writing got deep into my marrow, y’all. Like this book will have you swan-diving headfirst into your feelings and backstroking in the sea of your emotions. Peep the discussion below and let me know what you think.
Also, I made a tumblr dedicated Junot Diaz’s carnal-ass way of depicting women in his stories. ThisIsHowYouDescribeHer.Tumblr.Com. Since even Slate agrees his literary lady descriptions are segsy. Enjoy!
