Oscar is a sweet but disastrously overweight ghetto nerd, a New Jersey romantic who dreams of becoming the Dominican J.R.R. Tolkien and, most of all, of finding love. But Oscar may never get what he wants. Blame the fuku, a curse that has haunted Oscar’s family for generations, following them on their epic journey from the Dominican Republic to the United States and back again.
The brief wondrous life of Oscar Wao is an intimate, multigenerational story of familial tragedy. Junot Diaz was born in Santo Domingo, and raised in New Jersey. See on E-Library
