ON EARTH WE'RE BRIEFLY GORGEOUS

by | Read by Ocean Vuong

Fiction • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Ocean Vuong narrates the story of a young Vietnamese immigrant to the U.S. who is completing a letter to his mother, who cannot read. As both author and narrator, Vuong is in the perfect position to narrate the audiobook just as it was intended. His delivery gives even more power to the captivating prose, keeping the listener hooked as the main character, Little Dog, discovers what it means to be young, gay, and Vietnamese in a country that is not able to truly understand him. The listener is carried along with Vuong's voice, almost as if listening to a carefully crafted melody. V.B. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019]
