Junot Díaz Pairs Up with Jaime Hernandez, Heaven and Nature Rejoice


This Is How You Lose Her, the latest collection of short stories from spectacular writer and all-around good human being Junot Díaz, will be reissued in a deluxe edition in October.

That deluxe edition will include illustrations from none other than alt-comic legend Jaime Hernandez, whose series Love and Rockets (co-created with his brother Gilbert) laid the groundwork for Díaz’s writing in many ways.

Get a sneak peek at a few of the illustrations here!
