"THE BRIEF WONDROUS LIFE OF OSCAR WAO. By Junot Díaz. (Riverhead, $24.95.) A nerdy Dominican-American yearns to write and fall in love."

Pretty good book. That's not how anyone who has read it would describe it, though. Is it? I have like 75 pages left.

I loved the Diaz novel, the new William Trevor collection, and also Dinaw Mengestu's novel, The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears.
