Reviews for Visa Wedding:
Andrew Sclater, Sphinx: all about poetry pamphlets:
“This has to be good for poetry in both traditions [Scots and English] – it cocks a snook at pat renderings of nation and identities, pointing at how most of us are hybrids lying outside categories. Harry Giles’ poems really sing along.”

Donald Gardner, Sabotage: 
“Giles seems to veer between an intellectual, formal severity and a desire to celebrate, a naughtiness that charms. […] His work has a technical maturity.”
