A brief wondrous blurb review of Oscar Wao

Wao. Each word in the first 40 pages of "the brief wondrous life of oscar wao" is a subversive improvised explosive device (IED) in the culture wars. Each sentence strikes back at the empire. Each paragraph changes our social schema and forever alters the narrative of the Americas. And each footnote exposes more lies and omissions from history books. Required Reading.

YOU FEEL ME? that is why I talked about that book everyday. I asked everyday if you had read it yet. Because we need to read that book. Everyday. to remind us the power of words as subversive actions, as our fight back.
