The poetry in this book is absolutely stunning. It covers so much ground and weaves together so many different images and issues. Vuong is a master at playing with form and the format of the poem does a great job of supplementing the words. I found myself dog-earing many poems I really liked. These poems are beautiful and intense, and the ground they travel is impressive and genius. This is definitely a collection I recommend spending some time with.
