Abstract:

The life and work of Junot Díaz contains many worlds. His books - including National Book Award finalist This Is How You Lose Her and Pulitzer Prize winner The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao - journey between the old and the new and between the America that was and the America we're becoming. Born in the Dominican Republic but raised in New Jersey and American to the core, Junot Díaz is a spotter of the future, a curator of the past, a man of the here and now. In this edition of Moyers & Company, Díaz joins Bill to discuss the evolution of the great American story while offering funny and perceptive insights into his own work (as well as Star Wars and Moby Dick) and America's inevitable shift to a majority-minority country.
