Will Harris joins us to celebrate his debut poetry collection, RENDANG. Previously the author of a pamphlet, All This Is Implied, and an essay, Mixed-Race Superman, he has been shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem and the Fitzcaraldo Essay Prize.

RENDANG is a work that is both lyrical and experimental, asking questions about how we negotiate contradictions in our sense of self, our cultural heritage, and our everyday lives. This is a collection that is both intellectual and accessible, which combines linguistic innovation with a deeply emotional tenor.
