A match made in literary heaven: Junot Díaz's This Is How You Lose Her illustrated by Jaime Hernandez!!

So an incredible thing has happened: Junot Díaz and Jaime Hernandez - two of the store's favourite literary-artistic giants, have collaborated to produce a stunning new edition of Díaz's bestselling book, This Is How You Lose Her! We've been excited about this ever since we saw the announcement, and let me tell you - it has finally arrived and does not disappoint!

It is all kinds of beautiful, both outside and inside!

And from multiple angles!

Hernandez's drawing of Alma graces the inner front cover.

Even the endsheets showcase Hernandez's signature comic art!

Each chapter (or each short story, depending on how you look at things) features Hernandez's interpretation of the woman portrayed within it whom Yunior loves (in his own complicated way) and loses.

I already devoured This Is How You Lose Her when it came out in 2012, and now I'm looking forward to reading it again in so that I may savour this Díaz-Hernandez collaboration!
