Exquisite. Ocean Vuong writes with words profoundly alive and rich with nuance while at the same time precise and still—his words deep and calm like a lake under mist. Vuong's use of language and imagery transcends the ordinary.

As atoms pass through an eternal revolving door of possible form, energy and mass dance in fluid relationship. We are stardust, we are man, we are thought. We are story.”
