And you did. Shell stick around for a few months because you dated for a long long time Because you went through much togetherher fathers death, your tenure madness, her bar exam passed on the third attempt And because love, real love, is not so easily shed Over a tortured six month period you will fly to the DR, to Mexico for the funeral of a friend , to New Zealand You will walk the beach where they filmed The Piano, something shes always wanted to do, and now, in penitent desperation, you give it to her She is immensely sad on that beach and she walks up and down the shining sand alone, bare feet in the freezing water, and when you try to hug her she says, Dont She stares at the rocks jutting out of the water, the wind taking her hair straight back On the ride back to the hotel, up through those wild steeps, you pick up a pair of hitchhikers, a couple, so mixed its ridiculous, and so giddy with love that you almost throw them out the car She says nothing Later, in the hotel, she will cry. You try every trick in the book to keep her You write her letters You drive her to work You quote Neruda You compose a mass e mail disowning all your sucias You block their e mails You change your phone number You stop drinking You stop smoking You claim youre a sex addict and start attending meetings You blame your father You blame your mother You blame the patriarchy You blame Santo Domingo You find a therapist You cancel your Facebook You give her the passwords to all your email accounts You start taking salsa classes like you always swore you would so that the two of you could dance together You claim that you were sick, you claim that you were weakIt was the book It was the pressure and every hour like clockwork you say that youre so so sorry You try it all, but one day she will simply sit up in bed and say, No , and, Ya, and you will have to move from the Harlem apartment that you two have shared You consider not going You consider a squat protest In fact, you say wont go But in the end you do. For a while you haunt the city, like a two bit ballplayer dreaming of a call up You phone her every day and leave messages, which she doesnt answer You write her long sensitive letters, which she returns unopened You even show up at her apartment at odd hours and at her job downtown until finally her little sister calls you, the one who was always on your side, and she makes it plain If you try to contact my sister again shes going to put a restraining order on you. For some Negroes that wouldnt mean shit. But you aint that kind of Negro. You stop You move back to Boston You never see her again. Year 1 At first you pretend it dont matter You harbored a lot of grievances against her anyway Yes you did She didnt give good head, you hated the fuzz on her cheeks, she never waxed her pussy, she never cleaned up around the apartment, etc For a few weeks you almost believe it Of course you go back to smoking, to drinking, you drop the therapist and the sex addict groups and you run around with the sluts like its the good old days, like nothing has happened. Im back, you say to your boys. Elvis laughs Its almost like you never left. Youre good for like a week Then your moods become erratic One minute you have to stop yourself from jumping in the car and driving to see her and the next youre calling a sucia and saying, Youre the one I always wanted You start losing your temper with friends, with students, with colleagues You cry every time you hear Monchy and Alexandra, her favorite. Boston, where you never wanted to live, where you feel youve been exiled to, becomes a serious problem You have trouble adjusting to it fulltime to its trains that stop running at midnight, to the glumness of its inhabitants, to its startling lack of Sichuan food Almost on cue a lot of racist shit starts happening Maybe it was always there, maybe youve become sensitive after all your time in NYC White people pull up at traffic lights and scream at you with a hideous rage, like you nearly ran over their mothers Its fucking scary Before you can figure out what the fuck is going on they flip you the bird and peel out It happens again and again Security follows you in stores and every time you step on Harvard property youre asked for ID Three times, drunk whitedudes try to pick fights with you in different parts of the city. You take it all very personally I hope someone drops a fucking bomb on this city, you rant This is why no people of color want to live here Why all my black and Latino students leave as soon as they can. Elvis says nothing He was born and raised in Jamaica Plain,knows that trying to defend Boston from uncool is like blocking a bullet with a slice of bread Are you OK he asks finally. Im dandy, you say Mejor que nunca. Except youre not Youve lost all the mutual friends you had in NYC they went to her , your mother wont speak to you after what happened she liked the fiance better than she liked you , and youre feeling terribly guilty and terribly alone You keep writing letters to her, waiting for the day that you can hand them to her You also keep fucking everything that moves Thanksgiving you end up having to spend in your apartment because you cant face your mom and the idea of other peoples charity makes you furious The ex, as youre now calling her, always cooked a turkey, a chicken, a pernil Set aside all the wings for you That night you drink yourself into a stupor, spend two days recovering. You figure thats as bad as it gets You figure wrong During finals a depression rolls over you, so profound you doubt there is a name for it It feels like youre being slowly pincered apart, atom by atom. You stop hitting the gym or going out for drinks you stop shaving or washing your clothes in fact, you stop doing almost everything Your friends begin to worry about you, and they are not exactly the worrying types Im OK, you tell them, but with each passing week the depression darkens You try to describe it Like someone flew a plane into your soul Like someone flew two planes into your soul Elvis sits shivah with you in the apartment he pats you on the shoulder, tells you to take it easy Four years earlier Elvis had a Humvee blow up on him on a highway outside of Baghdad The burning wreckage pinned him for what felt like a week, so he knows a little about pain His back and buttocks and right arm so scarred up that even you, Mr Hard Nose, cant look at them Breathe, he tells you You breathe nonstop, like a marathon runner, but it doesnt help Your little letters become and pathetic Please, you write Please come back You have dreams where shes talking to you like in the old daysin that sweet Spanish of theCibao, no sign of rage, of disappointment And then you wake up. You stop sleeping, and some night when youre drunk andalone you have a wacky impulse to open the window of your fifth floor apartment and leap down to the street If it wasnt for a couple of things you probably would have done it, too But a you aint the killingyourself type b your boy Elvis keeps a strong eye on youhes over all the time, stands by the window as if he knows what youre thinking And c you have this ridiculous hope that maybe one day she will forgive you. She doesnt.From This is How You Lose Her September 2012 by Junot Diaz, published by Riverhead Books, a member of Penguin Group USA Inc., all rights reserved, reprinted with permission from the publisher.Junot Dazwrites in an idiom so electrifying and distinct its practically an act of aggression, at once enthralling, even erotic in its assertion of sudden intimacy It is a syncopated swagger step between opacity and transparency, exclusion and inclusion, defiance and desire His prose style is so irresistible, so sheerly entertaining, it risks blinding readers to its larger offerings Yet he weds form so ideally to content that instead of blinding us, it becomes the very lens through which we can see the joy and suffering of the signature Dazsubject what it means to belong to a diaspora, to live out the possibilities and ambiguities of perpetual insider outsider status The New York Times Book Review Nobody does scrappy, sassy, twice the speed of sound dialogue better than Junot Daz His exuberant short story collection, called This Is How You Lose Her, charts the lives of Dominican immigrants for whom the promise of America comes down to a minimum wage paycheck, an occasional walk to a movie in a mall and the momentary escape of a grappling in bed Maureen Corrigan, NPR Exhibits the potent blend of literary eloquence and street cred that earned him a Pulitzer Prize Dazs prose is vulgar, brave, and poetic O Magazine Searing, irresistible new stories Its a harsh worldDaz conjures but one filled also with beauty and humor and buoyed by the stubborn resilience of the human spirit People Junot Daz has one of the most distinctive and magnetic voices in contemporary fiction limber, streetwise, caffeinated and wonderfully eclectic The strongest tales are those fueled by the verbal energy and magpie language that made Brief Wondrous Life so memorable and that capture Yuniors efforts to commute between two cultures, Dominican and American, while always remaining an outsider Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times These stories are virtuosic, command performances that mine the deceptive, lovelorn hearts of men with the blend of tenderness, comedy and vulgarity of early Philip Roth It s Daz s voice that s such a delight, and it is every bit his own, a melting pot pastiche of Spanglish and street slang, pop culture and Dominican culture, and just devastating descriptive power, sometimes all in the same sentence USA Today Impressive comic in its mopiness, charming in its madness and irresistible in its heartfelt yearning The Washington Post The dark ferocity of each of these stories and the types of love it portrays is reason enough to celebrate this book But the collection is also a major contribution to the short story formIt is an engrossing, ambitious book for readers who demand of their fiction both emotional precision and linguistic daring NPR The centripetal force of Dazs sensibility and the slangy bar stool confidentiality of his voice that he makes this hybridization feel not only natural and irresistible, but inevitable, the voice of the future This is How You Lose Her manages to be achingly sad and joyful at the same time Its heart is true, even if Yuniors isnt Salon A propulsive new collection that succeeds not only because of the author s gift for exploring the nuances of the male but because of a writing style that moves with the rhythm and grace of a well danced merengue Seattle Times In Dazs magisterial voice, the trials and tribulations of sex obsessed objectifiers become a revelation The Boston Globe Scooch over, Nathan Zuckerman New Jersey has bred a new literary bad boy A Entertainment Weekly Ribald, streetwise, and stunningly movinga testament, like most of his work, to the yearning, clumsy ways young men come of age Vogue An excellent new collection of stories Daz is an energetic stylist who expertly moves between high literary storytelling and fizzy pop, between geek culture and immigrant life, between romance and high drama IndieBound Taken together, these stories braggadocio softens into something much vulnerable and devastating The intimacy and immediacy is not just seductive but downright conspiratorial A heartbreaker The Daily Beast Daz manages a seamless blend of high diction and low, of poetry and vulgarity Look no further for home truths on sex and heartbreak The Economist This collection of stories, like everything else Daz has written, feels vital in the literal sense of the word Tough, smart, unflinching, and exposed, This is How You Lose Her is the perfect reminder of why Junot Daz won the Pulitzer Prize He writes better about the rapid heartbeat of urban life than pretty much anyone else The Christian Science Monitor Filled with Dazs signature searing voice, loveable despicable characters and so true it hurts goodness Flavorwire Daz writes with subtle and sharp brilliance He dazzles us with his language skills and his story making talents, bringing us a narrative that is starkly vernacular and sophisticated, stylistically complex and direct A spectacular read Minneapolis Star Tribune This is How You Lose Her has maturity in content, if not in ethical behavior Dazs ability to be both conversational and formal, eloquent and plainspoken, to say brilliant things Trojan horsed in slang and self deprecation, has a way of making you put your guard completely down and be effected in surprising and powerful ways The Rumpus As tales of relationship redemption go, each of the nine relatable short stories in Junot Daz s consummate collection This Is How You Lose Her triumphs Through interrogative second person narration and colloquial language peppered with Spanish, the Pulitzer Prize winning author authentically captures Junior s cultural and emotional dualities Metro Searing, sometimes hilarious, and always disarming Readers will remember why everyone wants to write like Daz, bring him home, or both Raw and honest, these stories pulsate with raspy ghetto hip hop and the subtler yet vital echo of the human heart Publishers Weekly starred review Dazs standout fiction remains pinpoint, sinuous, gutsy, and imaginative Each taut tale of unrequited and betrayed love and family crises is electric with passionate observations and off the charts emotional and social intelligence Fast paced, unflinching, complexly funny, street talking tough, perfectly made, and deeply sensitive, Dazs gripping stories unveil lives shadowed by prejudice and poverty and bereft of reliable love and trust These are precarious, unappreciated, precious lives in which intimacy is a lost art, masculinity a parody, and kindness, reason, and hope struggle to survive like seedlings in a war zone Booklist starred review Dazs third book is as stunning as its predecessors These stories are hard and sad, but in Dazs hands they also crackle Library Journal starred review Magnificent an exuberant rendering of the driving rhythms and juicy Spanglish vocabulary of immigrant speech sharply observed and morally challenging Kirkus A beautifully stirring look at ruined relationships and lost loveand a than worthy follow up to Dazs 2007 Pulitzer winner, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao Bookpage In This Is How You Lose Her, Daz writes with subtlety and grace, once again demonstrating his remarkable facility for developing fully realized and authentic characters with an economical rawnessDaz skillfully portrays his protagonist so vividly, and with so much apparent honesty, that Yuniors voice comes across with an immediacy that never once feels inauthentic California Literary Review Daz continues to dazzle with his dynamite, street bruised wit The bass line of this collection is a thumpingly raw and sexual foray into lives that claw against poverty and racism It is a wild rhythm that makes vivid the collections heart busted steadiness Dallas Morning News This Is How Surviving What You Think Can t This t
