Jeremy Reed

Jeremy Reed, born on a chip of rock off the French Normandy coast has been for decades Britain’s most dynamic, adventurous, controversial, and futuristic poet. Called by the Independent “British poetry’s glam, spangly, shape-shifting answer to David Bowie,” his poetry, fiction, and performances of his work are singularly inimitable in their opposition to gray mainstream poetry. He has published over 40 books of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, winning prestigious literary prizes like the Somerset Maugham Award, and was on his coming to live in London in the 1980s patronized by the artist Francis Bacon.

“Jeremy Reed is not one of those establishment poets: boring, beige, and bovine. On the contrary, Mr. Reed stands alone, throwing colored glitter in the air.”
