Jeremy Reed's pop-star looks and unique facility to write about subjects so unusual and forward-looking, that they are mostly outside the remit of his contemporaries, have won him a singular place as Britain's foremost glamour poet. Called by The Independent, "British poetry's glam, spangly, shape-shifting answer to David Bowie," and by Pete Doherty, "a legend. What more can you fucking ask?" Jeremy Reed's poetry and fiction, and highly original readings with the musician, Itchy Ear, as the Ginger Light, create a colour and risk that brings high-octane energies to modern poetry. Bona Drag, a rich, brilliantly inventive collection of poems covering every detail of the poet's obsessive life, from the colour of Posh Spice's heels, to London street encounters, underworld friends, urban survival tactics, neuroscientific concepts and extraterrestrials, more than confirms J.G. Ballard's assessment of Reed, as "the most gifted poet working today, an extraordinary talent."
