For some of the basics, and a lot of the more-than-basics, Geoffrey G. O’Brien gave an astonishing (in generosity and insight) introduction to Sutherland as part of the Holloway Reading Series. And this might be the best first piece of critical appreciation of Sutherland’s work.

This reprints Happiness in Writing.
