Writers On Writing: Junot Diaz

Junot Diaz talks about writing culture, sci-fi/fantasy as a genre, hyper-masculinity, violence against women, intra-nerd hostility and representing Dominican culture. "What matters to me as an artist is to look at the things that culture doesn't want to talk about," and I love when he says that even though he is committed to writing the Dominican diasporic experience, his is "one tiny voice among ten million voices."
