On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong

Extremely poignant book that addresses so many different ideas and intertwines them with such consideration: the importance of language and consequences of not having language, language in forms other than words, the power or stifling potential of language, the drive to write, life as an immigrant, what is born(e) from/in war, coming of age, the opioid crisis in America, homosexuality, masculinity, familial relationships and inherited grief/trauma, mental health, PTSD, self-love and finding oneself beautiful...
