"A death creates both an absence—the hole left by the departed—and a presence—the weight of that hole. Diana Khoi Nguyen’s beautiful debut collection, Ghost Of, finds myriad ways to embody this seeming paradox... The collection’s story is ultimately not just of a sister’s grief, but of a family’s, of broad loss born from the Vietnam war and deep loss born from suicide. The book’s wildly inventive forms show the power struggle anyone who has experienced great loss can understand: the attempt to find a suitable container for mourning, and the acceptance that mourning dictates the shape of everything around it."
