Publisher description: Things have never been easy for Oscar, a sweet but disastrously overweight, lovesick Dominican ghetto nerd. 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. Oscar, still waiting for his first kiss, is just its most recent victim.

La breve favolosa vita di Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz ( Book )
2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in Italian and held by 2 libraries worldwide
"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.
