November 2012 Indie Next List
“Please believe me when I say that Diaz is one of our greatest living writers, and that This Is How You Lose Her is, in a word, stunning. In this, his second book of short stories, Diaz explores love in many of its manifestations and the ways in which we are prone to sabotaging ourselves. His prose is clear and compelling, his insight acute, and when I reached the last page I wanted to start all over again.”
— Amanda Hurley, Inkwood Books, Tampa, FL
