A beautifully illustrated collector's edition of Junot Diaz's new collection about the haunting, impossible power of love.

Jaime Hernandez - deemed 'one of the twentieth century's most significant comic creators' - has produced full-page, original illustrations for this stunning slipcased edition, one for each story, that perfectly capture the love-haunted spirit of the book.

This Is How You Lose Her, is a collection of linked narratives about love - passionate love, illicit love, dying love, maternal love - told through the lives of New Jersey Dominicans, as they struggle to find a point where their two worlds meet. In prose that is endlessly energetic and inventive, tender and funny, it lays bare the infinite longing and inevitable weaknesses of the human heart. Most of all, these stories remind us that the habit of passion always triumphs over experience and that 'love, when it hits us for real, has a half-life of forever.'
