Junot Diaz

For those who still have not read the book by Dominican-born auther, Junot Diaz, here is another reason. He just one the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for his book, "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao." He is only the second Latino to win for fiction. He is in the company of Hemingway, Faulkner, Norman Mailer & Toni Morrison, among many other great writers.

I will say it again, you MUST read this book. NOW!

You see NO COMMENTS! If it is not a post about trade and/or some DRama these fools are just not that interested, but I AM!! This is why I love and adore you. You are so well rounded as I aspire to be... And instead of read, I will read this book! Thank you Anthony

It is an excellent--no, exceptional--book, Anthony; I feel like a scratched CD singing its praises, but then again, everyone I know that I've recommended should read it has at least considered doing so. As always, thanks for the multifaceted range of your commentary on this blog!
