This is How You Lose Her

Junot Diaz

Yunior (originally from Dominica) features in all but one story. He doesn't really help himself to find the right girl but you can't help but think you'd go out with him on a date if he asked you! These stories may describe affairs of the heart with all the raw pain, pleasure and passion found in many relationships - but Erich Segal's 'Love Story' it isn't!

Stopped breaking night and drinking until he puked. Stopped with the Iceberg Slim thing, too. No more chicks crying over him on the couch or gobbling the rabo downstairs. The only one who hung tough was this ex of his, Tammy Franco, whom he's pretty much physically abused their whole relationship. Bad, too. A two-year long public-service announcement. He'd get so mad at her sometimes that he dragged her around the parking lot by her hair. Once her pants came unbuttoned and got yanked down to her ankles, and we could all see her toto and everything. That was the image I still had of her. After my brother, she had hopped on a whiteboy and gotten married faster than you can say I do. A beautiful girl.
