The Book and The Poet: Ocean Vuong

The Book and The Poet: Ocean Vuong

In Profile: Ocean Vuong – No

This 2016, April to be exact, sees the release of Ocean Vuong’s ‘Night Sky With Exit Wounds‘ and if ever there was a poetry book you need to get your hands on, this will be it.

Ocean Vuong is extraordinary, a force of gorgeousness, unique in voice and beauty. The future ahead for Ocean as a poet is going to be massive and mark my words, you will know this poet in the coming years. Again, The poetry of Vuong, just like that of Dimitra Xidous, has the potential to drop into my obsessive-collective of Neruda, Lorca, Handal and Simic.
