Ronald's comments:
The decade-long wait for Junot's first novel was well worth it....[A] melange of literary styles: at turns a urbane history of the Dominican Republic and a fantastical journey. Fans of his short fiction will be greatly rewarded, as will newbies. (read more)

Guess what I'm getting with my certificate?

If you're in NYC today (Thursday, October 6th), he'll be reading and discussing the book at the Union Square (17th & B'way) branch of Barnes & Noble.
