"'This is the best day ever / I haven’t killed a thing since 2006' begins the highly anticipated Time Is A Mother from poet and novelist Ocean Vuong. Readers can expect to find more of Vuong’s captivating verse, a high-lyric poet who seamlessly merges the personal with the political, the sentimental with the profane.
These are poems very much invested in care and renewal, in violence and its counterpart – protection. Throughout we notice an ongoing inquiry into what time does to human relations; how it manages to establish intimacy and longing, desire and need. The poems offer a confessional space enabling us to become part of another’s private world."
