Tom O’Bedlams’s Beauties was the first Reading volume to garner a long review in the Times Literary Supplement. The TLS review was positive, “Reading has steadily made his way into a territory explores by no one less in contemporary British poetry.” The volume is also considered by Isabel Martin as the first “typical Reading: variations on one large, unusual theme are bound into a mosaic structure by novelistic devices.”
