Junot Diaz and my new favorite font
March 15, 2010
From The Pura Principle, Junot Diaz‘s short story in the latest New Yorker:
- “You hear mothers say all the time that they would die for their children, but my mom never said shit like that. She didn’t have to. When it came to my brother, it was written across her face in 112-point Tupac Gothic—when you saw her watching him you knew that not only would this fucking vieja die for her son, she would probably put a knife in God’s eye if it would give my brother an extra day of life.”
“112-point Tupac Gothic” – peerless. You gotta love Junot Diaz.
