And Ju Don't No?

Real quick: Junot Diaz is an amazing writer. Readreadread. He's from Jersey by way of the Dominican Republic and boy, does he talk like it. He's a "ghetto nerd" that's already being called one of the major literary voices of the 21st century and dude already won a Pulitzer with his first novel, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. That book is incredible and you'll read it before you know what happened. His short stories are great, lots of dark humor about the absurdities of ghetto life, the immigrant experience, men as idiots, and this thing called life. It's just so smart. Anywho, enjoy the video below. It's long but worth it because he's insightful and cusses like a sailor. Kudos to Google for doing this, too.
