Flash Update on the Junot Diaz Matter


HERE”S part of an exchange I had yesterday with Monica Byrne about the Junot Diaz alleged sexual harassment controversy. The conversation was initiated by Byrne. The context is the previous New Pop Lit News post.

Do tweets go viral that quickly? I guess.

It remains curious that many of Junot’s defenders won’t mention the scurrilous allegations Byrne made one year ago. Did she choose an approved target?

As you can see, our twitter conversation concludes with Ms. Byrne declining to answer questions about those allegations.


Last evening New Pop Lit‘s editors had dinner at a quaint Italian restaurant with a train set running along the walls and had too much to eat. Afterward I had a crazy dream in which two of the pieces of the Junot Diaz puzzle came together. I’ll discuss that MONDAY.
