Fraser Sutherland is a much-travelled Nova Scotian who now lives in Toronto, Ontario. A reviewer for The Globe and Mail, he’s published sixteen books, including poetry, short fiction, and nonfiction in Canada and the United States. His work has appeared worldwide in numerous magazines and anthologies in print and online, and has been translated into French, Italian, Albanian, Serbo-Croatian, and Farsi. Having written and edited for many dictionaries in three countries, he may be the only Canadian poet who is also a lexicographer. Fraser Sutherland was a reporter and staff writer for several major newspapers and magazines, among them The Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail, and The Wall Street Journal before he became a freelance writer and editor.
Books by Fraser Sutherland
"Sutherland's strength is this deceptive simplicity, a verbal clarity and concision that come from his long practice of observation."
~ THE GLOBE AND MAIL
"Throughout the book, Sutherland is witty, his poetic persona endearingly self-deprecating ... on the whole, these are competent poems that are enjoyable to read and contemplate."
~ QUILL & QUIRE
"In this entertaining, often startling, compilation of prose and poetry, the things that shall be redeemed are many and varied, described in mockelevated language. This is not a bleak collection but a fascinating one."
~ ARC POETRY MAGAZINE
