Virtual Book Club: On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous
Join a lively discussion with fellow book lovers via Zoom to discuss On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong.
This first novel by poet Vuong (Night Sky with Exit Wounds, 2016) is narrated by Little Dog, a Vietnamese refugee who grew up in Hartford with his mother and his maternal grandmother, Lan. A writer now, he addresses his story as a letter to his mother, who cannot read, “”to tell you everything you’ll never know”…Casting a truly literary spell, Vuong’s tale of language and origin, beauty and the power of story, is an enrapturing first novel. (Starred Review, Booklist)
