Pulitzer-Prize Winning Author Junot Diaz

Junot Diaz burst onto the literary scene when he was 28, a young Dominican who wrote about growing up poor and fatherless in New Jersey. But when it came time to write a novel, he got stuck on page 75. "It wasn't that I couldn't write. I wrote every day. In bed, on the toilet, on the No. 6 train, at Shea Stadium... But none of it worked." Author Junot Diaz tells us how he finally finished his novel ten years later... and snagged the Pulitzer Prize.
