On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous
On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous. Using finely written prose, Vuong’s skill as a poet shines in this exposition about life as it is, unvarnished, conveying one’s trust. What does it take to be heard? There’s tenderness on these pages, and also the violence of life in a society where class, race and masculinity become toxic for the narrator of the novel, a man in his late twenties named Little Dog. The revelations in the novel can be dramatic and are always reflective, insightful and finely written. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous from amazon.com.
