great "Fresh Air" interview with Junot Diaz

On "Fresh Air" today, Terry Gross talked with Junot Diaz about his book, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao.

This sounds like a fantastic book that mixes aspects of multiple cultures, ranging from displaced Dominicans to geeky nerds. How can you not love a novel that includes the line "Homeboy dominated Santo Domingo like it was his very own private Mordor".

I bet both C and I would enjoy it. Definitely a pick-up.

UPDATE: changed icon, to fit in with the theme of "all bald people"
