THE Junot Diaz interview (so far):

"10 yrs ago I would have never had a chair like that. I always bought a spine mangler."

"You’ve said that Oscar Wao wasn’t your only novel since Drown, it was just the only one that was any good. What was wrong with the other ones?

JD: Set a person on fire, throw them off the Empire State Building, then have them run over by a train. To give a triage of what’s wrong with those books, we don’t have enough time."
