From his home in New Jersey, where he lives with his old-world mother and rebellious sister, Oscar dreams of becoming the Dominican J. R. R. Tolkien and, most of all, of finding love. But he may never get what he wants, thanks to the Fukœ-the curse that has haunted the Oscar's family for generations, dooming them to prison, torture, tragic accidents, and, above all, ill-starred love.

  • ""La breve e favolosa vita di Oscar Wao": già dal titolo si capisce che il romanzo non avrà un lieto fine classico. Ma non importa. Perché la vita di Oscar - ribattezzato Wao da un amico dominicano che storpia il nome di Wilde è davvero favolosa. Da favola. Da favola letteraria, magica e realistica al tempo stesso. Nasce e cresce nel New Jersey, il grasso, poco attraente, intelligente e parecchio eccitato Oscar. Sua madre Belicia è una ex reginetta di bellezza scappata da Santo Domingo perché perseguitata dal clan del dittatore Trujillo, la sorella, Lola, è una ragazza dolce, assennata e insieme spericolata come tutte le dominicane di Diaz. L'intero albero genealogico di Oscar, come quello di altre migliaia di dominicani, è composto da figure torturate, espropriate, martirizzate."
  • "La presente obra, es una novela intensa, divertida y original, en la que el autor crea para la ficción el Universo Doyo (dominicanyork), con héroes y villanos, estigmas y zonas invisibles, anillos y superpoderes enfrentados. En la misma narra la vida de Óscar un nerd dominicanyork que anhela convertirse en el tolkien criollo."@es

A true literary triumph, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao confirms Junot Diaz as one of the best and most exciting voices of our time."

  • "La saga tragi-comique d'une famille dominicaine émigrée aux États-Unis dans une banlieue du New Jersey, à travers le regard d'Oscar, obèse et recalé de l'amour en quête d'absolu. Nourrie des destins de ses aïeux brisés par la torture, la prison, l'exil et les amours impossibles, l'histoire d'Oscar s'écrit, fulgurante et désastreuse."

  • "Una crónica familiar que abarca tres generaciones y dos países, La breve y maravillosa vida de Oscar Wao cuenta la historia del gordiflón y solitario Oscar de León en su intento de convertirse en el J.R.R. Tolkien Dominicano y su desafortunada búsqueda del amor. Pero Oscar sólo es la última víctima del fukú--una maldición que durante generaciones ha perseguido a su familia, condenándoles a vidas de tortura, sufrimiento y amor desdichado. Con unos personajes inolvidables y una prosa vibrante e hipnótica, esta novela confirma a Junot Díaz como una de las mejores y más deslumbrantes voces de nuestra época, y nos ofrece una sobrecogedora visión de la inagotable capacidad humana para perseverar y arriesgarlo todo por amor."
