The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Juno Diaz
I bought this book the same week I heard that it had won the Pulizter Prize. I really enjoyed reading it, and might consider it in the future as a summer reading book for AP English. It reminded me of a cross between One Hundred Years of Solitude and Sherman Alexie's Flight. My only other Dominican reading has been Julia Alvarez, and In the Time of the Butterflies is good background for the political climate of the novel.
