About the Author

Suki has relationships: dissatisfactory relationships, inter-cultural relationships, relationships that end. She nostalges for past loves; is, in mid-life, wistful for the unborn, for the family she does not have, for what might have been. Suki comes at gender with a post-feminist eye. She is gay. She is straight. She lives alone and blogs into the night about art, life, death, her search for a raison d'etre and her quest for love. See
Sue Vickerman has received three Arts Council (UK) awards for her poetry, novels and short stories. 'Passionate, laconic poetry' (UA Fanthorpe), 'salt-drenched - I loved it' (Sandi Toksvig), 'Excellent' (Bloodaxe's Neil Astley), 'piercingly topical - a glorious achievement' (Magnus Magnusson). Sue Vickerman's latest poetry collection ADVENTUS is 24 poems which, though perennials, may be read as daily pre-Christmas reflections from 1st December. Reviews - 'A murder at Christmas', and the poet 'a wandering Orlando figure with a tsunamic sense of insecurity' (Yorkshire Times). Sue Vickerman's first poetry collection SHAG was closely followed by THE SOCIAL DECLINE OF THE OYSTERCATCHER. Her novel SPECIAL NEEDS is a biting commentary on Englishness, snobbery, sex and identity. KUNST, a poetry collection illustrated with life-drawings, is published under the name of fictional character 'Suki', the failed poet and jobbing artist's model (ageing, single, desperate) created by Sue Vickerman and with whom Sue also has a joint collection, THIN BONES LIKE WISH-BONES. An international readership follows the 'Suki' character's online serialised life-story - a tale both funny and desolate. Read A SMALL LIFE, its sequel TWO SMALL LIVES, and the third volume TRUE LIFE NUDE at: and watch Suki's movie shorts for free on Sue Vickerman's Amazon author-page. Home is wherever Sue Vickerman hangs her hat, but her native Yorkshire in England's rugged post-industrial north always draws her back.
