Drown was my first introduction to Junot Diaz, and it blew my mind. I have never read anything quite like it before. Diaz writes mostly from a young adult point of view and the stories are set both in the US and the Dominican Republic. Despite it being his first book, Diaz writes with an authority of a seasoned writer and the voice, the rhythm of his prose, are sure-footed and bold. There was a time when I thought I had to write a certain way to be published. I wish I read Diaz then.
