Great interview with a super-talented author! As a latina woman who has followed Diaz for some time now I'm shocked to find out he's not only dating a chinita blanquita (who appears to be whiter than most white people) but that she's a writer of crappy paranormal romance. We're all doomed. Genius meets dullsville and falls in love: sounds like a trite romance novel.

Saddest moment of the National Book Awards Ceremony evening: realizing, after talking to Marjorie Liu, that Junot Diaz (who I so admire) is also into trophy-ism, because while Ms. Liu is pretty she was full of clichés and had something like negative gravitas. Just to be sure I was not making a rash judgment, I checked out her Tiger Eye, and as I suspected it is trite pulp; she won't be attending any NBA functions based on her own talent. How can someone with Diaz's genius and sensibilities fall for someone who writes like dentist's drill (to use his metaphor) and whose readership is fundamentally conservative?! Who has written 17 "novels" in less years? Her blog could be confused for that of an 8th grader’s. Diaz must have endless opportunities to meet women who are beautiful and talented and smart.
