This is a lovely lovely book of poems. Nearly every poem ended in a way that left me saying "mmmmm" with pleasure or admiration or the quiet of feeling stunned by such beautiful words.

Mesmerizing, unforgettable, and a heart open in your hand. Vuong holds back nothing. This is one to reread and keep on the desk. To hold tight to the connection of why we write!

A powerful collection of poems, about desire, longing, war, and loss. Vuong writes of the shattering effects of the Vietnamese war for the people of Vietnam. His poems are shot through with desire: for others, for sex, for meaning, as well as loss: of people, of love. The world and he are the sca...

Verse is memory turned around... A warehouse of the remembered... And too the forgotten... And the consciously left out... Description, diction, misuse... The author decides what to use... The poetry medium is deader... Than the poet ever could be... Except for me, always, always me... So now, is this obv...

This is the first full-length collection by Ocean Vuong, a rather thoughtless writer who is careless with words and who has never crossed a pathos he didn't immediately take.
