Born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Díaz immigrated with his family to New Jersey when he was six years old. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Rutgers University, and shortly after graduating created the character “Yunior”, who juno essay as narrator of several of his later books.
Diaz received the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for his novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. In May 2018, the author Zinzi Clemmons and several more women publicly accused Díaz of sexual harassment and verbal abuse. Díaz was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. He was the third child in a family of five. Throughout most of his early childhood, he lived with his mother and grandparents while his father worked in the United States.
Díaz immigrated to Parlin, New Jersey, in December 1974, where he was re-united with his father. Díaz attended Madison Park Elementary and was a voracious reader, often walking four miles in order to borrow books from his public library.
