George Haddad writes about humans and their “bizarre relationship with honesty”. Seizure Magazine described his debut novella, Populate and Perish, as having “razor-sharp wit, incisive social critiques, and intensity of feeling”. George studied at Melbourne University and sometimes performs his poetry. Populate and Perish was the winner of the Viva La Novella prize in 2016. His shorter fiction can be read in The Lifted Brow, Overland and Seizure magazines.
George says: “my mother says, in Arabic, ‘The brain is a decoration’, so I try not to think too much about my writing and mostly let the world share its words with me.”
