Winner of the Eighth Annual White Pine Press Poetry Prize.


Born and raised in Meriden, Connecticut, Surowiecki received his B.A. and M.A. in English from the University of Connecticut. He works as a freelance writer in the Hartford area. His work has appeared in journals including Briar Cliff Review, RHINO, North American Review, Prairie Schooner, and Nimrod Review. His poems have won prizes in contests sponsored by the Georgia State University Review, Common Ground Review, Portland Pen, Kimera, the Mississippi Review, and Two Rivers Review. His chapbook, "Caliban Poems", was published by West Town Press in 2001.


This first full-length collection of work marks the emergence of a strong new voice in American poetry. "Watching Cartoons Before Attending a Funeral enacts an intimate and familiar accord between personal and communal perception--'the etiquette failure teaches, the quiet an owl inspires'--the sweet sting of living. He 'lowers a lens' and we see what has been there all along, so self-evident yet willfully avoided. The poet endows our thousand and one indiscretions with a human face and the words to admit them. Watching Cartoons is a risk and a beckoning."
