Wow, a week has gone since we shared Melissa Fu’s lovely Stickleback, and I am pleased to say that it is now time for #2 in our series of Free Friday Night Fish Suppers.
This week we have a man that quite simply is a legend.
Bjork has called his work ‘the most beautiful, outrageously brilliant poetry in the world’ and Seamus Heaney said that, ‘Reed’s poetry is full of rich and careful writing, dense with pleasure in words that pleasure the world and waken us to its lovely surprises’.

‘Jeremy Reed is a legend. What more can you fucking ask?’ Pete Doherty
‘Jeremy Reed’s talent is almost extraterrestrial in its brilliance. He is Rimbaud reconfigured as the Man who fell to Earth, a visitor from deep space whose time machine was designed by Lautreamont and de Sade, and powered by the most exotic fuels the imagination has ever devised.’ J.G. Ballard
‘In its detail and ambition alone, Orange Sunshine confirms Reed’s place as a great lyric poet of pop’s shadow.’ Michael Bracewell
‘The most beautiful, outrageously brilliant poetry in the world’. Bjork
‘When Patti Smith meets Rimbaud at Graceland, the result is Jeremy Reed’s Heartbreak Hotel’. Edmund White
‘Jeremy Reed is the real definition of British poetry now and deserves to be worshipped himself’. Richard Hell
‘One of the most original virtuoso voices to be heard in the poetry of our time’. Lawrence Ferlinghetti
‘The man is light worlds apart from his contemporaries in poetry’. Andrew Loog Oldham
‘Reed’s poetry is full of rich and careful writing, dense with pleasure in words that pleasure the world and waken us to its lovely surprises’. Seamus Heaney
