A Small Life
Published by Cinnamon Press
Suki is a struggling writer and poet. A bit anorexic, slightly suicidal, she turns to life-modelling to make ends meet. A Small Life is a sad, funny story about loneliness, the search for love and the quest for meaning, told through Suki’s diary notes and the drawings and paintings she snaps on her mobile.
Edgy and intimate, this innovative collection of prose, poetry and life drawing is rich in its variety, and taboo-breaking in its honesty.
Sue Vickerman was born in Bradford, where she now lives.

She received an Arts Council award to complete her debut novel, Special Needs, published by Cinnamon Press in 2011.
