Junot Díaz and Jamaica Kincaid read from their novels at the 92nd Street Y, Jan 26, 2009.

Junot reads first, and Kincaid begins her reading at the 2:52 mark

Junot Díaz’s novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao won the Pulitzer Prize in 2008. Said Edward P. Jones: It is the untold stories that propel—those vibrant, colorful, magical, historical swirls of humanity that make up our knowing. [This] first novel offers that and more. Jamaica Kincaids fiction vividly and often harrowingly describes the difficult coming-of-age of strong-minded girls who, very much like herself, were born into tropical poverty, wrote Dwight Garner. Kincaids works include Lucy, The Autobiography of My Mother, My Brother, Talk Stories and Mr. Potter.
