FRIDAY PRAYERS is a chapbook of five new poems from Tony Beyer whose ANCHOR STONE was a finalist in the 2018 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards. 'Island time' is a meditation on impermanence and identity ("we who so loved the world / are its destroyers'), while the title poem in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque killings considers complicity, & is followed by 'Crusade', an account of a rugby match between the Chiefs & the Crusaders. "Tony Beyer has never followed signposts; he has always attended to the road, rewarding us with a considered prosody that honours the moment yet goes beyond it. His language is disciplined, almost ascetic, but there is a generosity in even the most clipped line, a kind of 'elated patience' that is rare, and all the more welcome for its rarity, in New Zealand poetry." -David Howard.
