Reviews / praise for "Parang"

Review in Overland Literary blog by Ali Alizadeh:

Review in Stash Everything:

"I savored this. Omar Musa is a special writer with his own beat, cutting through worlds" - Mohsin Hamid, Booker shortlisted author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist

"Never mind page versus stage, this is poetry: listen" - Jeet Thayil, Booker shortlisted author of Narcopolis

"Parang is as brutal as it is delicate, poems romp between the urban landscape and foreign humidities... I love these poems, they are a clarion call to the listless, to take up the parang, or the pen, the instrument of the book and make something happen. A balm for the conflicted, Musa is a rhapsodist like no other" - Tara June Winch, author of Swallow the Air
