Night Sky with Exit Wounds By Ocean Vuong Cover Image
$16.00
ISBN: 9781556594953
Availability: Call or email to ask for estimate.
Published: Copper Canyon Press - April 5th, 2016

Once I read my first novel by Ocean Vuong, I was so enthralled by every aspect of Vuong's style and presence on the page that I binged every title I could get my hands on - but "Night Sky with Exit Wounds" remains very close to my heart. Not only is this collection exceptionally written, it is raw, heartbreaking, and speaks to the queer experience in a way that stays with my always. Vuong's poetry is devastatingly magical and I would recommend this collection to anyone who feels like a little lost star in a big night sky.

"Flamingo" is a perfect example of beautiful, and effective visual storytelling. Although the text is subtle and minimal, the images are out of this world and the story itself will make you shed at least one wholesome tear. A lovely, imaginative journey for readers of any age or level.

Revenge: Eleven Dark Tales By Yoko Ogawa, Stephen Snyder (Translated by) Cover Image

Published: Picador - January 29th, 2013

Yoko Ogawa is one of my favorite authors of all time but Revenge is one title I've returned to over and over again this year. Every dark tale is haunting, mysterious, subtly interwoven perfection that is sure to keep you on edge and turning pages. Revenge is a delicately disturbing portrait of time, death, and the human condition. I do not recommend reading these creepy tales before bed!!
