Kerri's book Pick of the Week is "This is How You Lose Her," the new collection of short stories from Pulitzer-Prize winner Junot Diaz.
Publisher's Weekly gave it a rave review:
"As before, Diaz's searing, sometimes hilarious, and always disarming language holds everything together with just enough of a sense that it all could fall to pieces in the process--if it hasn't already. Drown inspired an entire generation of imitators and with this collection, readers will remember why everyone wants to write like Diaz, bring him home, or both. Raw and honest, these stories pulsate with raspy ghetto hip-hop and the subtler yet more vital echo of the human heart."
Diaz will join Kerri at Talking Volumes on September 18.
