‘A marvel’ Marlon James

Brilliant, heart-breaking and highly original, discover Ocean Vuong’s shattering coming of age novel.

This 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. It tells of Vietnam, of the lasting impact of war, and of his family’s struggle to forge a new future.

And it serves as a doorway into parts of Little Dog’s life his mother has never known – episodes of bewilderment, fear and passion – all the while moving closer to an unforgettable revelation.

Reminded me that every word can be an incantation, and that beauty does hard and important work’ Rebecca Solnit

    Beautiful cover. Perfect condition. This purchase was an absolute beauty. The best part about the store is that they have most of the books uou might have had saved on your carts on other platforms but the prices just didn’t let uou go through with the purchase. When I got to this page I immediately bought myself a chunk of books and I’ve never been happier.
