On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous Questions and Answers. The Question and Answer section for On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous is a great resource to ask questions, find answers, and discuss the novel. Ask Your Own QuestionAuthor: Ocean Vuong. On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous review: Wisdom without voltage. Ocean Vuong’s much-anticipated novel has much to say about race, memory and trauma but lacks a compelling structure.

On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous 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.   The strongest parts of On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous, where this novel picks up genuine force and has some of the mournful resonance of the Bruce Springsteen song ‘The River,’ arrive in its second half. This is where the narrator details his doomed love affair with Trevor, a boy he meets while both work in the tobacco fields Author: Book Marks.

This book a masterpiece. On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous is an ode to loss and struggle, to being a Vietnamese American, to Hartford, Connecticut, and it’s a compassionate epistolary ode to a mother who may or may not know how to read. I dog-eared so many pages the book almost collapsed—I almost did.”—Tommy Orange, author of There There.   Since we live here, you might think we know all there is to know about Earth. Not at all, actually! We have a lot we can learn about our home planet. Learn more about Earth and all the planets in our solar system.
