Earlier in May we noted that Christos Tsiolkas was very keen for Canberra region author (and son of “CityNews” arts editor Helen Musa) Omar Musa’s forthcoming book.
From one of Australia’s most respected authors we’ve now moved up to the world scale for gushing praise, with the original literary hard man Irvine Welsh getting in on the action.
This stunning debut novel has such swaggering exuberance that it will make most other fiction you read this year seem criminally dull.
You have been warned.
— Irvine Welsh
“Here Come The Dogs” by Omar Musa is scheduled for publication on July 23.
