Reviews

Praise for Here Come the Dogs "This is fully realized depiction of how art and life inform each other."--Publishers Weekly "[B]rilliant...Immediate and compelling, this one deserves a place on the shelf next to Trainspotting or The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. Both a snapshot of a specific time and place, and an examination of the broadness of humanity, Here Come The Dogs is filled with stinging insights."--Cleaver Magazine "Musa's writing is beautiful, absolutely beautiful. Here Come The Dogs is vision and transformation, the highest form. You'll see a new Australia and hear a new and vital voice."--David Vann "A beautiful and angry book. Musa is a poet and every page of this book speaks to his ferocious talent."--Fatima Bhutto, author of Shadow of the Crescent Moon "With compassion and urgency, Here Come the Dogs excavates the pain of those who struggle to remain part of a ruthless equation that has been determined by others."--Los Angeles Times "A bravado novel about survival and rebirth in a subculture that moves to its own rhythms."--Kirkus "America please meet Omar Musa, a writer with the attuned ear of a great poet, the narrative gifts of seasoned novelist, and no slight exposure to the beautiful struggle. This book is like one of those hip-hop songs that forevermore becomes an anthem--this time for the disenfranchised aspirants of Australia. Read him now or suffer for it."-- Mitchell S. Jackson, author of The Residue Years "The streets are alive with the sound of Omar Musa! Blood and fire, destruction and generation, nightmares and dreams, all converge in this breathtaking rendering of the forever-journey of masculine coming-of-age. Musa is a sterling stylist and the combination of poetry and prose, literary narrative and hip hop verse, in HERE COME THE DOGS does that impossible thing: creates a work unlike any other."--Porochista Khakpour, author of The Last Illusion and Sons and Other Flammable Objects "A beautiful and angry book. Musa is a poet and every page of this book speaks to his ferocious talent."--Fatima Bhutto, author of The Shadow of the Crescent Moon and Songs of Blood and Sword: A Daughter's Memoir "Omar Musa is a brother to the world. His words inspire courage and a genuine desire to experience justice in the modern world."--Marc E. Bassy "Musa's writing is beautiful, absolutely beautiful. Here Come The Dogs is vision and transformation, the highest form. You'll see a new Australia and hear a new and vital voice." -- David Vann, author of Aquarium, Goat Mountain, and Legend of a Suicide "This stunning 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 "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. His voice is genuine, new and exciting; his voice roars."--Christos Tsiolkas, author of The Slap "At once tender, beautiful, gritty, and raw."--The Guardian Praise for Here Come the Dogs This is fully realized depiction of how art and life inform each other.
