Ocean Vuong is a Vietnamese-American poet, essayist, and novelist. His first collection of poetry, Night Sky with Exit Wounds, won the T.S. Eliot Prize, the first of many awards his poetry has received. He was also awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 2019. Vuong’s most recent work, On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous is a letter from a son to his mother which deals with the immigrant experience, the aftermath of war, and the importance of language.
