Junot Diaz and his broken heart


Dominican writer Junot Diaz reveals how he, too, has had his heart broken in Love is a Four-Letter Word: True Stories of Breakups, Bad Relationships, and Broken Hearts (out July 28 from Plume). The collection, edited by Michael Taeckens with an introduction by Neal Pollack, gathers lovelorn tales from writers like Wendy McClure, Kate Christensen, Gary Shteyngart, Diaz, and Jami Attenberg, among others.

“Rewarding and worth dipping into . . . Standouts include Junot Diaz’s ‘Homecoming, with Turtle,’ Gary Shteyngart’s ‘Texas’ and Maud Newton’s ‘Conversations You Have at Twenty.’ Humorist Dan Kennedy, author of the acerbic 2008 memoir Rock On, crafts a hilarious piece about dating a divorced aerobics instructor a decade older than he.”
