Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, this is the story of Oscar, an overweight teen struggling to reconcile his love of science fiction and fantasy with the cultural expectations set by his Dominican heritage. It’s also the story of Oscar’s family—and the terrible curse that was placed upon them by a brutal dictator. Full of lively prose and built on Dominican history, The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao is multicultural magical realism for today’s reader. Adult themes make this selection appropriate for mature students.
