I am so happy for Junot Diaz and so incredibly jealous that he got Jaime Hernandez to illustrate the new edition of THIS IS HOW YOU LOSE HER. 

You can see preview illustration at Entertainment Weekly HERE, though it’s a hard website to look at because some of it is not art by Jaime Hernandez and a lot of it is ads popping up in your face. 

That is all. 

John Hodgman seal of approval!
