Nguyen's gorgeously raw lyricism reveals a man in between: navigating gentleness and fury; love and war; his own desires and "the lace-white landscape" of his mother's; and Saigon and Minneapolis, where "my grief / is a foreign currency," where "white folks this far north either under-spice or over-spice their food like they're overcompensating for history."
