Night Sky with Exit Wounds: Ocean Vuong and Max Porter
Mon 8 May 2017, 19:00 – 20:30 BST
Ocean Vuong will be in conversation with Max Porter, author of Grief is the Thing With Feathers (Faber and Faber), and reading from his eagerly-awaited first collection, Night Sky With Exit Wounds (Cape Poetry). Vuong’s work has won plaudits on both sides of the Atlantic: in the New Yorker, Daniel Wenger wrote that ‘Reading Vuong is like watching a fish move’. In 2016, Vuong was awarded the Whiting Award.
