Writer Junot Díaz on reading and recovery

I first met Junot Díaz in paperback (Drown, 1996); lying crooked and out-of-place on a half empty shelf, between dust and sneeze, dark and light, below the crackling speaker in the corner of The Book Loft.

I revisited the thought of him, his work, maybe what he’s been reading recently in a NYTimes.com author feature, where Díaz understates bed rest post-surgery and instead entertains a host of literary pages both wrinkled and unturned.
