Ocean Vuong’s reckoning with the death of his mother – and the grief, trauma and love that attends such a loss – lies at the heart of his new poetry collection, Time is a Mother. Vuong’s work is infused with stories of migration, identity and queer lives. We are honoured to welcome this profoundly influential writer to Edinburgh. He speaks with Alycia Pirmohamed.
