<p><strong>Named one of the most anticipated books of 2019 by <em>Vulture</em>, <em>Entertainment Weekly</em>, Buzzfeed, <em>Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe</em>, Oprah.com,<em> Huffington Post,</em> The A.V. Club, <em>Nylon,</em> The Week, The Rumpus, The Millions, <em>The Guardian, Publishers Weekly,</em> and more<br /><br />Poet Ocean Vuong鈥檚 debut novel is a shattering portrait of a family, a first love, and the redemptive power of storytelling</strong><br /><br /><em>On Earth We鈥檙e Briefly Gorgeous</em> is a letter from a son to a mother who cannot read. Written when the speaker, Little Dog, is in his late twenties, the letter unearths a family鈥檚 history that began before he was born 鈥?a history whose epicenter is rooted in Vietnam 鈥?and serves as a doorway into parts of his life his mother has never known, all of it leading to an unforgettable revelation. At once a witness to the fraught yet undeniable love between a single mother and her son, it is also a brutally honest exploration of race, class, and masculinity. Asking questions central to our American moment, immersed as we are in addiction, violence, and trauma, but undergirded by compassion and tenderness, <em>On Earth We鈥檙e Briefly Gorgeous</em> is as much about the power of telling one鈥檚 own story as it is about the obliterating silence of not being heard. <br /><br />With stunning urgency and grace, Ocean Vuong writes of people caught between disparate worlds, and asks how we heal and rescue one another without forsaking who we are. The question of how to survive, and how to make of it a kind of joy, powers the most important debut novel of many years.</p>

Award-winning actor and bestselling author John Lithgow wields a whip-smart, satirical pen in this poetic diatribe chronicling the last few abysmal years in politics. With lacerating wit, he takes readers verse by verse through the history of Donald Trump's presidency, lampooning the likes of Betsy DeVos, Anthony Scaramucci, Scott Pruitt, Paul Manafort, Trump's doctors, and many others. Illustrated from cover to cover with Lithgow's never-before-seen line drawings, the poems collected in Dumpty draw inspiration from A. A. Milne, Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Mother Goose, and many more. A YUGE feat of laugh-out-loud lyrical storytelling, this hilarious and timely volume is bound to bring joy to poetry lovers, political junkies, and Lithgow fans.

<p><strong>A <em>New York Times</em> Notable Book of 2018<br /><br /><br /><br />"Wilson鈥檚 language is fresh, unpretentious and lean鈥t is rare to find a translation that is at once so effortlessly easy to read and so rigorously considered." 鈥擬adeline Miller, author of <em>Circe</em></strong></p><br /><p>Composed at the rosy-fingered dawn of world literature almost three millennia ago, <em>The Odyssey</em> is a poem about violence and the aftermath of war; about wealth, poverty and power; about marriage and family; about travelers, hospitality, and the yearning for home.</p><br /><p>This fresh, authoritative translation captures the beauty of this ancient poem as well as the drama of its narrative. Its characters are unforgettable, none more so than the 鈥渃omplicated鈥?hero himself, a man of many disguises, many tricks, and many moods, who emerges in this version as a more fully rounded human being than ever before.</p><br /><p>Written in iambic pentameter verse and a vivid, contemporary idiom, Emily Wilson鈥檚 <em>Odyssey</em> sings with a voice that echoes Homer鈥檚 music; matching the number of lines in the Greek original, the poem sails along at Homer鈥檚 swift, smooth pace.</p><br /><p>A fascinating, informative introduction explores the Bronze Age milieu that produced the epic, the poem鈥檚 major themes, the controversies about its origins, and the unparalleled scope of its impact and influence. Maps drawn especially for this volume, a pronunciation glossary, and extensive notes and summaries of each book make this is an <em>Odyssey</em> that will be treasured by a new generation of readers.</p>
