    "Writing your own story is perhaps the truest enactment of the American dream." Today on the B&N Podcast, we're talking with Ocean Vuong, the author of the remarkable new novel On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous. It's the debut work of fiction from a writer already celebrated for his work as a poet, but this poignant novel, written in the form of a young man's letter to his mother, has captivated readers and critics, making it one of the most talked-about books of 2019. He joined B&N's Miwa Messer for a conversation about this unique story of family, loss, survival, and falling in love.
