Junot Diaz on Rewriting the Story of America


“We write because we dream that someone will read us. The false way to be an artist is because you want applause.” Junot Diaz

“The life and work of Junot Díaz contains many worlds — and that makes him all the more worth listening to.” Andrew Whitcare

Below,Junot Díaz joins Bill Moyers to discuss the evolution of the great American story. Along the way he offers funny and perceptive insights into his own work, as well as Star Wars, Moby Dick, and America’s inevitable shift to a majority minority country.
