Drown

by Junot Diaz

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao absolutely blew me away, so I picked up this book hoping for more coming-of-age brilliance. If I’m honest, it’s not as good as Oscar Wao. Duh. Oscar Wao won Diaz the Pulitzer Price. But neither did it disappoint. If you haven’t read anything from Junot Diaz, read Oscar Wao. And if you loved it, you’ll enjoy Drown, too.
