The quiet decade that followed Junot Díaz’s leap into the limelight heaped the author with awards, but left readers anxious. Enter 2007’s The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, which has garnered almost universal praise for its tender portrayal of a Dominican dweeb. * Note: Look for a feature on Junot Díaz in an issue of the publication, Boldtype, publishing Wed 10.31.

Rated 3.5 by 13 members who went. This hysterical farce stars Academy Award nominee Rosie Perez as Googie Gomez and Tony Award nominee Kevin Chamberlin as Gaetano Proclo, a gay man hiding out from his homicidal brother-in-law who inadvertently finds himself in a gay bathhouse.
