Or something like that. Allow Sarah Blake to fix that.
Naamah finds her voice and name in Naamah , out now from Riverhead Books. The reader gets the chance to experience the biblical story from her perspective, all while Naamah contends with womanhood, faith, and, ultimately, her place in the world—both old and new. Blake expertly weaves the classic biblical story with her own queer and feminist retelling, even going as far to abandon all labels of sexuality to celebrate the unbridled desires, dreams, and hopes of a woman the reader will cling to long after they finish reading.
The performance will be recorded for an audiobook by Buckman Publishing. The Hallowed Halls , p. OneTable , p.

For it is also an epistle—the book takes the form of a letter written by the narrator Little Dog to his mother, Rose, who cannot read English—as well as epic poem, romance, elegy, family history, theory, and critical essay. This form opts to tell through expansion and surprise rather than build-up and release. Without closure and clear resolution, the novel emerges as a closer reflection of life.
Narrative development occurs as Little Dog remembers different scenes from his childhood and retells stories passed down to him by family members. You once told me that memory is a choice. Descriptions like these saturate the text with vivid details that steady and ground. At the same time, these passages slip away; Little Dog never writes about one place for too long.
We travel through time in a circular trajectory, our distance increasing from an epicenter only to return again, one circle removed. For Little Dog, putting language to memory becomes a way to survive. Beginning as a way out. Remembering and writing become avenues that Little Dog uses to resist death and insist on life.
This method offers a second chance, a way to travel back and rerecord, remake meaning, re-understand, and relive. The instinct to begin multiple times allows the writing to explode; it builds upon and apart from itself, always opening and blooming, even as it ends. Tension builds from an inundation of memory.
One way this manifests is through language and translation. For luck. Emphasizing the flexibility of language and meaning, Vuong shows just how it can be used to walk towards and within imagination. It lets us stop in order to keep going. The room of the sentence is the place where Little Dog reuses, re-sees, reinterprets, and reclaims language, and, as a result, memory.
At the same time, the sentence is what gets him farther from Rose, who cannot read these truths. We see the usefulness of failure and even the opportunity and openings it can provide. Perhaps in this work, expansion happens through the process of making visible the distance and the gaps. To be gorgeous, you must first be seen, but to be seen allows you to be hunted. And how might this liberation begin?
It is the song of what is left, alive, and beautiful. And maybe we sing to keep ourselves from falling. Maybe we sing to keep ourselves.

Similarly, Little Dog sings the song of the women who raised him—Lan and Rose. Though the prose is addressed to and revolves around Rose, in many ways her presence remains ghostlike. The audience learns about her primarily through her body and the work she does—her hands, her back, her aches.

It is her work that helps the family survive. Work is what Rose passes down to Little Dog—the song he is able to sing because she carried him and carries the story. Vuong writes with recognition that narratives of poverty, toxic masculinity, and trauma pervade and persevere. Their passing-down enter the present through spirals; they live within love as cycles of violence and destruction. For example, Little Dog explores the effects of violence on relationships by using history to trace back and understand the circumstances that shaped the people he loves.
He begins to see that the violence Rose inflicts on him mirrors the bullying she faced being half-white the daughter of Lan and an American soldier in Vietnam. The rules, they were already inside us. Between my lips, it was a bud sprouted from inside him, possible.
