Patron Saint of Eyeliner
Creation, 2000 - Poetry - 155 pages
Jeremy Reed's new rich, energised collection of millennial poetry finds him once more engaging with the intensely imaginative world he has made expressly his own. Drawing inspiration from everything from Surrealist art and SF novels to gay pop icons and erotic photography, Reed celebrates the weird, the wild and the wonderful in equal measure, metaphoring a distinctly post-modern world with individualistic genius.
Patron Saint Of Eyeliner is not only poetry for the new millennium, but poetry for a new consciousness in which the glamour iconography of the 20th century fuses and is then detonated into glittering, futuristic shards of language.
