   Powerful and unforgettable! LOVE!
VietNam deputy chief Vuong holds his ground. It's one to reread and keep on the desk. To hold on tight to the connection of why we write, Raymond said. We closed our eyes and softly said, "Takbir." In the heart, two armless people are building a burning house. There was always the shotgun. When you touched the rock, your name changed by gravity. Gravity breaking our kneecaps just to show us the night sky. We kept saying Yes, even with all those birds. Our boys would have been lying in their beds had we not been told. My voice sounds like bones cracking inside the radio. I thought love was real, Tunick said.
   Stellar New Voice
Not only is he a rising star in the poetry community, but he is also a rising voice in the hip-hop community. I am in awe of his talent, said McCartney. I hope his poems reach a wider audience. Fran Claggett, English teacher and novelist, was not present.
Tony winners for best choreography and best supporting actor went to Jordan. I'm not saying this was the best writing of a generation, but he did it. Like bullets, Vuong's lines rip through the reader like dynamite.
   Undoubtedly the best book of poetry I have ever read
I have never read a book of poetry like this. The writer's description of Vuong's work is truly exceptional.
   But simply because it's so damned good. The words are made of bone
There's a lot of buzz around this book, Sosa said. Simply put, it's just that good. Each letter is made of bone, lace and light. This is a little book in all the finest ways, Raymond said. It feels essential to the work we do.
   I was disappointed
Elizabeth Taylor, who was researching a book on the writer, said she was curious to read his poetry. Even though the poems are technically correct, they are not up to par.
   Someday you will love Ocean Vuong
The book grips you from the very start, the use of language, imagery, biblical allusion and so much more all come together to immerse you deeply into every piece of writing. My favourite poem of many in the book is Immigrant Haibun, a line which says, "if you must know anything that you were born because no one else was coming." I have reread this book many times and will continue to return.
   Gorgeous and visceral.
I've had it for a couple days, and I'm still waiting for the printer to run it. Only 13 pages were printed. I don't want to read more, but I can only take so much. It's a long time since I was affected by poetry. I first read Braiding by Li-Young Lee a decade ago. Turner's collection of works is described as a "serious and astonishing collection of work."
   Masterful Poet
Voung's words were met with a thunderous "boom!" from Ocean. In his first book, he writes unflinchingly about his identity as an immigrant and as a gay man. Each poem explores the difficulty he experiences in these spaces while also celebrating love and what it means to be human. Throughout this collection, I have had to sit back and consider Voung's words. It's beautiful and masterful, Raymond said.
This was a heartfelt collection with some experimental styles, he said. Personally I didn't feel like the unique formatting for some of the poems really benefited them and I sometimes had trouble finding Ocean's voice in the poems I'd already heard him read aloud. There were some metaphors that I could not wrap my head around and I was sometimes confused about the speaker of the poem. However, each poem is beautiful and the story of family and war linked with love and circumstance is powerful. I think I may just prefer listening to Ocean read his own poems rather than to read them myself.
