Summary
Diaz won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize with this story of Oscar Wao, a first-generation Dominican-American of mixed descent. In this compelling tale, the author sets out to demonstrate that an individual cannot be understood in isolation from the history of his family and his nation. The result is a funny, tragic story of how 500 years of historical and familial bad luck shape the destiny of its sad, smart, lovable and short-lived protagonist
