It’s been five years since Junot Díaz’s first novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and more than 15 since his first book of short stories Drown. Oscar Wao was a literary sensation upon its release in 2007, topping several year-end best lists and racking up major prizes, including the Pulitzer.

Díaz returns to the short story form and focuses on the topic of love in This Is How You Lose Her, scheduled for a Sept. 11 release.

A description from Riverhead books:

The stories in This Is How You Lose Her, by turns hilarious and devastating, raucous and tender, lay bare the infinite longing and inevitable weaknesses of our all-too-human hearts. They capture the heat of new passion, the recklessness with which we betray what we most treasure, and the torture we go through – “the begging, the crawling over glass, the crying” – to try to mend what we’ve broken beyond repair. They recall the echoes that intimacy leaves behind, even where we thought we did not care. They teach us the catechism of affections: that the faithlessness of the fathers is visited upon the children; that what we do unto our exes is inevitably done in turn unto us; and that loving thy neighbor as thyself is a commandment more safely honored on platonic than erotic terms. Most of all, these stories remind us that the habit of passion always triumphs over experience, and that “love, when it hits us for real, has a half-life of forever.”
