The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz.
 

The book that won the ‘08  Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, written by the author who will be  the Pomfret School Schwartz
Visiting Fellow in January 2018.

Oscar is a sweet but disastrously overweight ghetto nerd who—from the New Jersey home he shares with his old world mother and rebellious sister—dreams of becoming the Dominican J.R.R. Tolkien and, most of all, finding love. But Oscar may never get what he wants. Blame the fukú—a curse that has haunted Oscar’s family for generations, following them on their epic journey from Santo Domingo to the USA. Encapsulating Dominican-American history, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao opens our eyes to an astonishing vision of the contemporary American experience and explores the endless human capacity to persevere—and risk it all—in the name of love.                                           (from Amazon)
