Omar Musa in Conversation

Event Closed

More Details

Australian-Malaysian Omar Musa is a man of many talents – the rapper, author and slam-poet was named as one of the Sydney Morning Herald Best Young Australian Novelists of 2015 and his novel Here Come the Dogs was long-listed for the Miles Franklin Literary Award. Irvine Welsh said of the coming-of-age tale: “This stunning debut novel has such swaggering exuberance that it will make most other fiction you read this year seem criminally dull.” Vishal Nanda joins Musa to talk about his career and how issues of class, race and identity fuel his writing.
