Sad Havoc Among the Birds by DS Maolalai


This is a beautifully-crafted, witty and sometimes sad exploration of the challenges of youth and contemporary life. Sad Havoc draws on the poet’s memories, often viewed through the prism of his later experience of different countries and cultures. The poet’s unique style, often playful, occasionally irreverent, is arresting in its evocation of the chaos, humour and the pathos of urban living.

“…wry, sometimes beautiful, sometimes sad observations on people, things, nature and arts itself. Here’s a poet with some moxy, some style and some grace, who sings like a wounded winter bird and is worth listening to.”  Kark Parkinson
