Editorial reviews (6 reviews)

Every word in This Is How You Lose Her feels like it was earned with blood, sweat, and tears—and yet it still admirably measures up to Díaz’s previous work.

“This Is How You Lose Her” doesn’t aspire to be a grand anatomy of love like Gabriel García Márquez’s “Love in the Time of Cholera” — which opens out into a luminous meditation on the varieties of love and loss and the persistence of passion — but it gives us a small, revealing window on the subject.

Although it breaks no new ground, This Is How You Lose Her is an entertaining and satisfying addition to a slender but vital body of work that has helped to nudge our nation’s literature in an inclusive direction.
