This Is How You Lose Her is the second collection of short stories by Junot Díaz. This story was included in The Best American Short Stories 1999.
Junot Díaz’s new collection of stories features a familiar character, Yunior, and themes of family history, cultural mores and romantic infidelity. His new collection, This Is How You Lose Her, can stand on its own, but fans will be glad to hear that it brings back Yunior, who narrated several of the stories in Díaz’s first collection, Drown, as well as parts of his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. Yunior is a gorgeously full-blown character - half the time you want to comfort him, the other half you want to kick him in the pants - and at this point it just seems lame not to refer to him as Díaz’s alter ego, so conspicuously do their biographies overlap.
Oreallym8 says: It was pretty interesting - the perspective of a dude who has been heavily influenced by corrupt male figures in his life, but chooses to view himself as a genuinely okay person nse that he knows who he wants to be, but has trouble getting there. He's emotional, but apathetic about his bad decisions. I somehow empathized for him right from the start. MoreLess Show More Show Less.
Q: What do Junot Díaz's three books have in common? A: Yunior, the flamboyantly unfaithful Dominican narrator who talks a streetwise American-English studded with Spanish slang. This repetition is a brave gambit with an enormous payoff. In Drown (short stories, 1996), Yunior's voice was not quite fully formed. In Díaz, there are always other stories taking place away from the main narrative. Yunior is centre stage in This Is How You Lose Her: although his brother, Rafa, has cancer, his primary concern is his own life and heartbreaks. Díaz's great achievement is to remain true to the helpless solipsism that possesses all of us most of the time, while allowing the reader to see those other stories on the periphery of Yunior's purview.
Junot Diaz has come full circle and returned to his writing roots can best be described as a spinoff. I'll make a small commission! Support creators you love. The way he organizes it is witty and very timely; I burst out laughing more than once while reading the stories.
I really liked Diaz’ previous book, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. Incredible writing, great character, compelling story, etc. This one still has Diaz’ unique writing style and even brings back one of the characters from Oscar Wao, and ye. . She’s a Bergenline original: short with a big mouth and big hips and dark curly hair you could lose a hand in. Her father’s a baker, her mother sells kid’s clothes door to door. She might be nobody’s pendeja but she’s also a forgiving soul. Dragged me into church every Sunday for Spanish Mass, and when one of her relatives is sick, especially the ones in Cuba, she writes letters to some nuns in Pennsylvania, asks the sisters to pray for her family.
Díaz says that he was never encouraged as a young boy by the culture around him to see women as fully human.

I know what she was doing. Making me aware of my precarious position in her life. Like I was not aware. Hot white clouds stranded in the sky, cars being washed down with hoses, music allowed outside. Everybody getting ready for summer, even us.
