About the Author
Poet and novelist Kathrin Schmidt was born in 1958 in Gotha in the former German Democratic Republic and lives in Berlin. She trained as a psychologist and later worked as an editor and a social scientist before writing full time. Her first poetry pamphlet was published in the famous 'Poesiealbum' series by the GDR publisher, Verlag Neues Leben, of which Christa Wolf had in earlier years been editor-in-chief. Two further collections were published in the GDR. In the process of Germany's reunification Schmidt represented the anti-reunification United Left, the most left-wing of several newly-formed groups in the GDR, at Berlin city's round-table discussions. Schmidt's to-date eight poetry volumes and five novels have garnered a host of residencies and awards, notably the Leonce-und-Lena Poetry Prize in 1993, and in 2009 she was awarded both the annual prize of the reputed Südwestfunk Radio Best List and the German Book Prize for You're not dying (Du Stirbst Nicht), beating a shortlist that included Nobel Prize winner Herta Müller. The novel has since been translated into thirteen languages.
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.
