MA Orthofer Reviews The Institute for Taxi Poetry by Imraan Coovadia

The Institute for Taxi PoetryVerdict: carrot

In his story Career Move (in the collection Heavy Water), Martin Amis posits a world where it is poets that are the most successful writers (while screenwriters and novelists toil for a pittance and receive practically no recognition). Imraan Coovadia does not go quite so far in The Institute for Taxi Poetry, but the world of this novel also differs somewhat from the present-day one.
