The Matuschka Case

TSAR Publications, 2006

From the publisher's website:

The poems in The Matuschka Case represent the core of Fraser Sutherland’s poetic preoccupations over several decades. They are enquiries into the nature of happiness, absent or present, deserved or undeserved. For Sutherland, happiness consists in the practice of art, and in often baffled attempts to understand the other. Rueful and sardonic, uncomfortable in his own white skin, he seeks the other in everything that is foreign and unfamiliar.
