Description - On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong

The Sunday Times bestselling debut novel from the prize-winning prodigy
** Sunday Times Bestseller **

Brilliant, heartbreaking and highly original, Ocean Vuong's debut novel is a shattering portrait of a family, and a testament to the redemptive power of storytelling.

'A marvel' Marlon James

This is a letter from a son to a mother who cannot read. Written when the speaker, Little Dog, is in his late twenties, the letter unearths a family's history that began before he was born. It tells of Vietnam, of the lasting impact of war, and of his family's struggle to forge a new future. And it serves as a doorway into parts of Little Dog's life his mother has never known - episodes of bewilderment, fear and passion - all the while moving closer to an unforgettable revelation.

'A masterpiece' Max Porter

'Luminous, shattering, urgent, necessary' Celeste Ng
