Drown

Autobiographical stories from the author’s youth growing up in the Dominican Republic, migrating to the US at age 9. The complexity of his father’s abandonment and eventual return (and eventual re-abandonment). The stories show a real side of immigration, never a false note ringing. Good writing, evocative.
Diaz won a Pulitzer for his novel last year.
