Summary

Faber Stories, a landmark series of individual volumes, presents masters of the short story form at work in a range of genres and styles.

You try every trick in the book to keep her. You write her letters. You drive her to work. You quote Neruda … You try it all, but one day she will simply sit up in bed and say, No more.

In Yunior, a Dominican–American writer and Harvard professor, Junot Díaz has created an irresistibly erratic protagonist, who sweeps you up in the poetic energy of his speech as he rehearses a broad repertoire of bad behaviour.

Originally the climactic tale in the chain-linked This is How You Lose Her, ‘The Cheater’s Guide to Love’ is a superb standalone song of decadence and experience.

Bringing together past, present and future in our ninetieth year, Faber Stories is a celebratory compendium of collectable work.

Critic Reviews

The snap and crackle of Diaz's unique storytelling voice is as addictive as ever, an intense, exuberant blend of disarming romanticism and eloquent prose with street-smart Spanglish-peppered quips.
