Waterstones Says

Ranging over time and place with a playful air of possibility, Harris’s formally audacious work is nonetheless imbued with an urgency concerning belonging and identity in a fragmented world.

A startlingly radical and surreal poetic journey, RENDANG takes the reader from West Sumatra to Planet Mongo via Gray's Inn Road, alighting on Indonesian artefacts, gentrification, and citizenry.

RENDANG is an urgent comment on what it means to be a person now, a dissection of and love letter to the histories, places, and things that make us. Through adept and complex language play, a ludic voice, and a masterful command of form, Will Harris creates a poetry that charts the ambivalences, difficulties, and voices of our contemporary landscape.

“Not for me”

Just because a book of poems makes you think doesn't mean it is good. The best poems for me are the ones that can articulate difficult thoughts so effortlessly.
