Framed, Chapter 1: She was the PTA mom everyone knew. Who would want to harm her?

Junot Diaz, 43, Cambridge

In lyrical but unsentimental works of fiction, Diaz takes readers into a life lived somewhere between the Dominican Republic, where he was born, and the United States, where he has lived since he was a teenager. "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao" (2007) traces generations pursuing dreams in both countries and cultures; and Diaz's short stories portray the grit and poetry of everyday life in a cross-cultural existence.
