I'll very interested in your response to it, Elisa.
Thank you, I will tell you after Christmas!
No, as it turns out it won't be available here until March, either in hardback or on Kindle... :(

I'm currently reading a fascinating a very moving novel by a young Vietnamese American author, Ocean Vuong.

I can really recommend it - it's about his coming-of-age (and coming-out) in Hartford, Connecticut - his mother and his grandmother don't speak one single word of English, and he, as a little boy and a queer teenager, has to cope with this difficult situation.

And maybe, he thought, they'd never got much farther than that.

I love that title. Everyone should embrace that thought!
