Highball Reading Series [poetry]
Our main focus is publishing art books, but occasionally a poet whispers in our ears, and a chapbook is produced.

no through road

No Through Road {Martin Reiner: Czech Republic}
This is Martin's first chapbook to be published in English. The chapbook is printed with rounded corners and includes collages by Ivan Wernisch.

Martin Reiner is the author of five books of poems and a novel. Born in Brno, Czech Republic, he attended several military academies and was imprisoned for eight months before re-entering civilian life. He has worked primarily in the arts since 1989.

The blog, Wear During Orange Alert, wrote a thoughtful review:
The work of Martin Reiner (as translated by Andrew Oakland) is compact and powerful touching on nature, man, and machine. He makes micro commentaries on life through his perceived reality in the Czech Republic. Reading through this collection you begin to realize that life, no matter the physical location, is a universal phenomenon." Read more @ Orange Spotlight.
