"The singing energy of Welsh literature is here grafted onto Australian colloquial informality and laid-back irony ... Bettina Kaiser's distinctive black-and-white design and illustrations are a precise fit with both the form and the content of Reid's text, in an inventive collaboration between writer and artist." – Kerryn Goldsworthy, Sydney Morning Herald

  "While Reid's gift for imagery is a major strength, it is her empathy for humankind that makes her a truly intriguing writer." – Stylus Lit

"SIARAD is a roar of reassurance; of self-discovery and self-empowerment." – Underground Writers

"Psychedelic. Startling. Alive." Donna Ward
"This book is truly brilliant work." – Rachael Mead
"SIARAD is the most enjoyable collection I've read this year." – Sarah Temporal
