Author(s): Mark Reid
Blindside, Mark Reid's fifth collection, exhibits his accustomed minimalist rigour, a spare and allusive lyric, contemporary, colloquial, committed, seeking the sublime in the everyday.
Mark Reid's poetry has always delighted & challenged me. His distinctive voice & finely tuned ear for just the right music has given his work a potency that's been hard-won. Reid is a craftsman. —Anthony Lawrence
Reid's is a brooding art, open to epiphany, constructing it, but also measuring its constant retreat. —Lyn McCredden
Praise for Looking out from Bashan: the republic of Og:
Mark Reid's brilliantly strange but accessible writing is lyrical and magical. — Philip Salom An intricately delving blend of ancient and modern apocrypha which unearths stories in us all. Mesmerising. —Toby Davidson
