Critically-acclaimed author Junot Díaz has finally revealed the deluxe edition to his book This Is How You Lose Her and you're just gonna love who added some rockin' illustrations! From his site:
"A must-have collector's edition of Junot Díaz's bestseller and National Book Award finalist, a stunningly designed and illustrated slipcase edition of This Is How You Lose Her, which was a New York Times bestseller and a finalist for the 2013 National Book Award. Jaime Hernandez-deemed 'one of the twentieth century's most significant comic creators' for the 'Love and Rockets' series he co-created and other work-has produced full-page, original illustrations for this edition, one for each story, that perfectly capture the love-haunted spirit of the book and the string of gorgeous, smart, gutsy women whom irresistible, irrepressible Yunior loves and loses."
It's been awhile since I've been a bookseller but I'd definitely have some fun with the displays since Stephen Dixon's His Wife Leaves Him is coming out the same season....
