On Earth We Are Briefly Gorgeous

On Earth We Are Briefly Gorgeous

Ocean Vuong

What We Say: This semi-autobiographical novel speaks solemnly of Vuong’s experiences as an immigrant and a gay man and is written as a beautifully honest open letter to his mother who can’t read. 

What They Say: “Everything is beautiful in this debut… Vuong has originality running through his veins, and a good deal of humour and impish charm… This impressive debut hints at even greater things to come” – The Times
