Written as a letter to a mother who may never read it, On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous is a painful and passionate story about identity, survival, loss and sex. “Sex can get you close to a boy. But language,” Vuong writes, “gets you deeper.” In this extraordinary debut novel by an established poet, language is key. Elegiac in places, it cuts to the bone and will break your heart.
