ABOUT THE BOOK
"On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous" by NYU alumnus Ocean Vuong (GSAS ’16) 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 — a history whose epicenter is rooted in Vietnam — and serves as a doorway into parts of his life his mother has never known, all of it leading to an unforgettable revelation.
