        Junot Díaz, Writer | MacArthur Fellows Program

        In this interview, 2012 MacArthur Fellow Junot Díaz discusses the roles place and identity play in his writing and how his own immigrant experience informs his storytelling. Díaz is a writer whose works of fiction offer powerful insight into the realities of the Caribbean diaspora, American assimilation, and lives lived between cultures. Born in the Dominican Republic and living in the U.S. since adolescence, Díaz writes from the vantage point of his own experience, creating nuanced characters struggling to succeed and often invisible in plain sight. This resource is part of the MacArthur Fellows Program Collection.
