Canberra poet, author and rapper Omar Musa (also the son of “CityNews” Arts Editor Helen Musa) has had a big rap with leading Australian author Christos Tsiolkas heaping high praise on Omar’s new book “Here Come The Dogs“.
“Omar Musa’s writing is tough and tender, harsh and poetic, raw and beautiful, it speaks to how we live and dream now. This novel broke my heart a little but it also made me ecstatic at the possibilities of what the best writing can do,” Christos wrote.
“His voice is genuince, new and exciting; his voice roars.”
It should be noted the two were interviewed together as far back as 2010 at the Ubud Writer’s Festival.
