Ocean Vuong loved rules when starting as a young writer in his 20ies, and he compares following the rules with following the guard rails on the highway. Once he has climbed over the guard rail as a writer, he wanders far away from things that he has known, “far away from anything that has a name, a sign or a road signal.”
Listen to the Vietnamese-American poet, who encourages young writers to go off the road that has already been discovered and explored by others.
