Second collection from one of The Times’ Top Ten Literary Stars, 2008.

“Ross Sutherland’s poetry approaches the epic; a kind of epic on a human scale. If he were a piece of furniture, he would be an elegant high stool that felt uncomfortable and stylish at the same time.”
Ian McMillan

In this new mini-book, Ross Sutherland presents the poem as honed, stripped and exposed. With trademark wit, Twelve Nudes interrogates the failures of love, exploding the dynamics of text, voice and body. In this elegant but uneasy satire, ‘to be naked is to speak without footnotes’.

Ross Sutherland was born in Edinburgh in 1979. A former lecturer in electronic literature at Liverpool John Moores University, Ross works as a freelance journalist and tutor in Creative Writing. He was one of The Times’ Top Ten Literary Stars of 2008. A founding member of Aisle16, Ross has co-written eight live literature productions, including the critically acclaimed Poetry Boyband and Found in Translation. Ross makes regular appearances at Manchester Literature Festival, Aldeburgh Poetry Festival, Glastonbury, Latitude Festival and venues around the UK. His first collection, Things To Do Before You Leave Town, was published by Penned in the Margins in 2009.
