Junot Diaz Drops Your Ass Off in Kazakhstan

This morning Junot Diaz was on NPR talking about the immigrant experience, one of a series of authors Morning Edition has tapped this week (Jhumpa Lahiri is on tomorrow) to throw a bit of a Thanksgiving curveball in advance of that most American holiday. I approve. "Can you imagine," says Diaz, within about 15 seconds, "what it would be like if today I just took you, stripped you from your family, your circuits, your language, your culture, and dropped your ass off in Kazakhstan?" It pretty much just takes off from there.
