We asked Spanish Professor Clara Lomas: What’s On Your Reading List?
“The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao” by Junot Díaz
“The book takes us on a journey into an American story of imagination, migrations, fantasy, and desire. This transnational novel is an aesthetic amalgam of realism, science fiction, magical realism, and action hero comic book.”
Lomas is chair of the Spanish and Portuguese Department and director of the CC Semester in Latin America.
