Parang is the second collection of poetry from former Australian Poetry Slam winner Omar Musa. Written over four years, the collection explores Malaysian jungles, dark Australian streets, and dreams. Dealing with the issues of loss, migration and belonging, Parang is an incisive and sometimes raw look at the here and now of a changing world.'I savored this. Omar Musa is a special writer with his own beat, cutting through worlds.' Mohsin Hamid, author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist'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 or 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'Never mind page versus stage, this is poetry: listen.' Jeet Thayil, author of Narcopolis
