Your Sort was shortlisted for the Aldeburgh Best First Collection award.

The poem "Ka’aba' was highly commended in the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem, and republished in the Forward Book of Poetry Anthology


'Reiss is not easy to classify — always a good sign'— Helena Nelson

'Like all the best poems, Ed Reiss's poems are things-in-themselves independent of their maker, new happenings in the world' — Chris Preddle

'He can be flippant and funny — "Take my boss, Slobber McJab / auditing my attitude, / telling me to turn that frown upside down" — but also deadly serious — "It's blow-back time, a multi-polar world / of fault-line conflicts. Someone told me so, / a friend who once flipped burgers. / Now he slices and dices credit risk" — often within a few lines of the same poem'  — Keith Richmond, The Tribune

'Ed Reiss’s first book-length collection, Your Sort, is a wonderful addition to a body of English humorous writing that started with Edward Lear, and Lewis Carroll and ends up in the Mighty Boosh having come via the Goon Show, but also the warm ‘Englishness’ of Men from the Ministry, and Round the Horne.' — Ian Pople, Manchester Review
