Foyles Notes

Diaz's stories focus on young narrators living in the Dominican Republic and New Jersey, trying to come up with their own rules for living as they negotiate immigration, family and their burgeoning hopes and dreams for their own lives.

Synopsis

Originally published in 1997, "Drown" instantly garnered terrific acclaim. Moving from the barrios of the Dominican Republic to the struggling urban communities of New Jersey, these heartbreaking, completely original stories established Diaz as one of contemporary fiction's most exhilarating new voices.
