Blindside by Mark Reid launched in Sydney
Blindside by Mark Reid was launched at the Friend in Hand Hotel, Sydney by Philip Salom, poet and novelist.
Blindside, Mark Reid's fifth collection, exhibits his accustomed minimalist rigour, a spare & 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
