An Unobtrusive Vice

by Tony Ullyatt

An Unobtrusive Vice was shortlisted for the 2019 South African Literary Award.

Crouched among the last surviving pieces of my life’s wreck, I seek a chemistry, some wizard’s formula which releases the wayward life from its grim history.” – Tony Ullyatt, ‘Like Icarus’

ISBN 9780639914107 | 90 pages | 210 x 140mm | 2017 | Dryad Press, South Africa | Paperback



"Tony Ullyatt is that rare thing: a poet’s poet, but at the same time utterly accessible. His poems are deliciously dense, his images rich and sharp and his tone ironical, lightly seasoned with humour. Poetry itself is his unobtrusive vice."

- Johann De Lange
