Karaoke King by George Dai PRE-ORDER
Published 14th June 2021. Available for Pre-Order.
Karaoke King is a second collection from Cardiff-born, London-based poet Dai George, in which he ponders the state of the nations he moves through, muses on the music that he has loved since childhood, and considers the battered dreams of his generation, who are faced with a multitude of challenges: climate change, a fractured politics, and in 2020, a pandemic.
“George's ear is precise, rueful, sanative. His images can amaze, yet through each poem journeys a voice we always want to know better, capable even in the tightest situations of the sort of thought you wish you’d had.”- Vidyan Ravinthiran
