Reviews / praise for "Parang"


Review in Overland Literary blog by Ali Alizadeh: http://overland.org.au/blogs/poetry-fiction-reviews/2013/04/portrait-of-poets-as-young-men/

Review in Stash Everything: http://www.stasheverything.com/lifestyle/book-review-omar-musa-parang/

"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
