Oscar is a sweet but disastrously overweight ghetto nerd who -- from the New Jersey home he shares with his old world mother and rebellious sister -- dreams of becoming the Dominican J.R.R. Tolkien and, most of all, finding love. But Oscar may never get what he wants. Blame the fuk├║ -- a curse that has haunted Oscar's family for generations, following them on their epic journey from Santo Domingo to the USA. Encapsulating Dominican-American history, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao opens our eyes to an astonishing vision of the contemporary American experience and explores the endless human capacity to persevere -- and risk it all -- in the name of love.
