Oscar è un ghetto-nerd dominicano obeso e goffo, ossessionato dalle ragazze (che naturalmente lo ignorano), dai giochi di ruolo e dai romanzi di fantascienza e fantasy. Vive nel New Jersey sognando di diventare il nuovo Tolkien e, più di ogni altra cosa, di trovare l'amore. Per riuscirci, il nostro eroe deve sfidare il micidiale fukú , l'antica maledizione che perseguita i membri della sua famiglia da generazioni. La prosa vivida e giocosa di Junot Díaz, che incarna la molteplicità di luoghi, culture e linguaggi alla base del romanzo, ci trasporta dalle periferie americane contemporanee al sanguinario e insieme mitico regno del dittatore dominicano Rafael Leónidas Trujillo, mentre la storia del mite e sventurato giovane si intreccia a quella della sua gente e della sua terra, che finiranno per plasmarne il destino.
