*TS Eliot Prize goes to Ocean Vuong*


Before announcing Vuong as the winner at a ceremony at the Wallace
Collection in London on Monday evening <x-apple-data-detectors://0>, chair
of judges Bill Herbert called Night Sky With Exit Wounds “a compellingly
assured debut, the definitive arrival of a significant voice”.

“There is an incredible power in the story of this collection,” said
Herbert. “There is a mystery at the heart of the book about generational
karma, this migrant figure coming to terms with his relationship with his
past, his relationship with his father and his relationship with his
sexuality. All of that is borne out in some quite extraordinary imagery.
The view of the world from this book is quite stunning.”
