"... a great introduction to poetry and flash fiction for the uninitiated. Reid's writing is satisfyingly complex without being obscure, and relatable without being simplistic ... if you hated poetry at school and haven't read it since, this might just be the book to reignite your interest. " – Tracey Korsten, Glam Adelaide

"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

FURTHER PRAISE FOR SIARAD

"Psychedelic. Startling. Alive." – Donna Ward, She I Dare Not Name: A Spinster's Meditations on Life

"This book is a piece of art in the way that Caroline Reid is an artist.  It is truly brilliant work." – Rachael Mead, The Application of Pressure, The Flaw in the Pattern

"I was re-reading SIARAD again today ... it's so good. I just love the different tempos and rhythms." – Tracy Crisp, An Evening with The Vegetarian Librarian, Surrogate

"I heard your voice in my head as I read, so it was like you were reading it to me. I love 'Lost' the most. All those beautiful spaces around the words." – Kristin Martin, To Rhyme Or Not To Rhyme

"SIARAD is the most enjoyable collection I've read this year. Caroline's voice is authentic, it leaps from the page. There were moments I gasped out loud as the writing hits you right in the gut ... Absolutely recommended whether you think you like poetry or not." – Sarah Temporal, poet  &  performer 

"I will leave a copy in my work bag that I take to and from the mine, kind of like The Little Book of Calm, just in case I need a little reminder of what's important in life. It's amazing." – Gary, FIFO worker
