Waiting for the man : the life & music of Lou Reed by Jeremy Reed( Book )
15 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in English and Czech and held by 267 libraries worldwide
In Waiting For The Man, Jeremy Reed focuses on Lou Reed as rock's principal literary avatar, paying special attention to his controversial lyrics and prototypical garage sound. Lou Reed influenced generations of copyists that took note of his outlaw status, ambiguous sexual orientation characterised by his seventies relationship with the transvestite Rachel, his implacable mystique, cool and defiant attitude as the narrator of subcultures. Finally the book examines the transcendent, if reluctant calm, that Reed arrived at in later life

"A Stranger on Earth documents Kavan's lifelong addiction to heroin, the circumstances of her two failed marriages, the inseparable bond she formed with her psychiatrist, her suicide attempts, her strange and unforgettable paintings, her devoted attraction to gay men, her obsessions, phobias, reclusiveness and indomitable artistic courage. Reed celebrates the extraordinary imagination at work in her highly acclaimed novels (such as Asylum Piece, Sleep Has His House, Ice and Mercury) and brings us to a new understanding of this most enigmatic of figures, whose work has been praised by J.G. Ballard, Doris Lessing, Brian Aldiss and Christopher Priest. Book jacket."--Jacket

Boy Caesar by Jeremy Reed( Book )
7 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 122 libraries worldwide
The past comes to haunt contemporary London in this evocation of the life of the little-known Roman boy-emperor Heliogabalus. The Roman gay world is mirrored in Jim's relations with his duplicitous partner Danny and the contemporary London scene they inhabit. Events take a weird twist when Jim discovers that his partner is living a double life as a member of a Soho cult involving bizarre sex rites on Hampstead Heath. Jim, repulsed by the cult's activities, finds his relationship with Danny at an end and that he has become a target for the leader's reprisals. He is forced to take refuge with a female friend, Masako, with whom he visits Rome to investigate sites associated with Heliogabalus. She leads him to a meeting with a wealthy young man called Antonio who claims to be the emperor reincarnated. When Jim and Masako return to London, Antonio pays them a visit which leads to a conclusion every bit as dramatic as Heliogabalus' own murder. An electrifying poetic recreation of a bizarre period of ancient history, this narrative also dissolves boundaries of gender in the complex relationship of Jim and Masako

The Dilly : a secret history of Piccadilly rent boys by Jeremy Reed( Book )
4 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
A previously undocumented slice of London's underground sexual history, and its influence upon artists from Oscar Wilde to Francis Bacon and the Stones to Morrissey, Piccadilly Circus has long been London's principal location for selling sex and this is the first book to really explore the history of male prostitution at The Dilly. Dating from Oscar Wilde's notorious use of the location for pick-ups through to Francis Bacon's equal attraction to rough trade and right up to recent history, this is a pioneering piece of counterculture history. Employing a flair for acute visual imagery, the author maps out Soho's submerged gay clubs and drinking-rooms in the decades before de-criminalization. This is followed by the new masculinity advocated by the Mod look in the 1960s, the influence of the place on rock and pop stars such as the Stones, Marc Almond, and Morrissey (all of whom themed songs on the subject) and the book closes in the 1990s, when online male escorts replaced rent boys on the Piccadilly railing. An exhilaratingly colorful recreation of the illegal occupation of one of London''s central commercial zones by lawless Dilly boys, this history is augmented by first-hand interviews with rent boys who worked the meat-rack in the 1970s as well as a chapter recording the author's personal friendship with the artist Francis Bacon
Sooner or later Frank by Jeremy Reed( Book )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 61 libraries worldwide
Sooner or Later Frank finds Jeremy Reed optimising his London quarter of Soho and the West End, its outlaws, opportune strangers and rogue mavericks condensed into poems coloured by an imagery that pushes pioneering edges towards final frontiers. Right on the big city moment, and with an eye for arresting acute visual detail, Reed makes the capital into personal affairs. His characteristic love of glamour, rock music, seasonal step-changes, and a Ballardian preoccupation with the visionary render this new PBS Recommendation, in John Ashbery's words on Reed's recent work, 'a dazzling tour de fo
