[Nice Morning for it, Adam] shows O'Sullivan in superb form: he just keeps getting better. It's the most assured collection of New Zealand poetry I have read in a while, and should be early favourite for poetry book of the year.
Mark Houlahan DOMINION POST
The overall impression is of a world of heightened sensuality, of gorgeous, hidden places, all observed with a dry intellectual rigour that is sad and wise and quite wonderful.
Penny Beider NZ HERALD
The poems shimmer with skill and vigour... With this collection his reputation as one of New Zealand's foremost living literary figures takes another step forward.
Paul Thompson THE PRESS
Vincent OSullivan delights his many enthusiastic readers with another fine collection of poems, playfully entitled Blame Vermeer.
Praise for Blame Vermeer
Blame Vermeer is the real thing, wise beyond the attitudes of wisdom, deft beyond the posturing of deftness, brimming with O'Sullivan's exciting ability simply to talk his understated way into sheer bloody poetry.

This is a fascinating new collection... I like it a lot and I encourage everybody to go out and get it. Harry Ricketts SPEAKING VOLUMES RADIO NEW ZEALAND NATIONAL
...Blame Vermeer is unwavering, astounding, oh-so-charming and very cool. Superb stuff from one of our best writers.
