The Night Horse: New and Selected Poems

This volume pulls together work from Reichard's first five collections of poetry, and offers a substantial selection of new work.

In 2017, Mid-List Press closed, and Reichard's collections How To (2004), This Brightness (2007) and Sin Eater (2010) were no longer in print. The Night Horse: New and Selected Poems, will feature work from these out-of-print collections, in addition to work from Reichard's first collection, An Alchemy in the Bones (1999) and his most recent collection, Two Men Rowing Madly Toward Infinity (2016).
