Ocean Vuong: Auf Erden sind wir kurz grandios


Ocean Vuong: On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous

In his début novel, the Vietnamese-born poet writes with penetrating clarity about a mother-son relationship, a first love, and a life in which violence and tenderness collide. »Poetic in the deepest sense – not merely on the level of language, but in its structure and its intelligence […] The result is an uncategorizable hybrid of what reads like memoir, bildungsroman, and book-length poem.« (Kirkus)
