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.

Mark Reid and David Musgrave

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 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

Blindside is available from this website.
