Dariusz Suska was born in 1968 in Złotoryja, ninety kilometres west of Wrocław. He studied experimental physics at the universities of Wrocław and Warsaw, and information technology as a post-graduate, but has not taken up either professionally.
He has published several books of poetry, of which Wszyscy nasi drodzy zakopani (All Our Dear Ones Buried, 2000) won an award from the Polish Society of Book Publishers and was nominated for the Nike Award. Another collection, Cała w piachu (Covered in Sand, 2004) was on the Nike shortlist. His most recent book, Czysta ziemia (Pure Earth), appeared in February 2008. He lives in Warsaw with his wife Aneta, who is the author of a book about Japanese cinema, and their five-year-old daughter Natasza.
