About the Author:

Sebastian Matthews is the author of the poetry collection We Generous (Red Hen Press) and a memoir, In My Father’s Footsteps (W. W. Norton). He co-edited, with Stanley Plumly, Search Party: Collected Poems of William Matthews (a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize) and New Hope for the Dead: Uncollected William Matthews. Matthews teaches at Warren Wilson College and serves on the faculty of the Queens College Low-Residency MFA in Creative Writing program, as well as on the editorial board of Q Ave Press, makers of handmade poetry chapbooks. His work has appeared in journals such as the Virginia Quarterly Review, American Poetry Review, The Atlantic Monthly, and Tin House.

Review:

Music and musicians run through most of these poems--Louis Armstrong to the Beach Boys and many in between--but Sebastian Matthews has his own poetic music, which is poised, tuneful and able to shift from major to minor so nice you hardly notice. We Generous is a terrific collection, an assembly of smart and evocative moments. --Billy Collins

We Generous is just that, replete with the rhythms of jazz and the language of soul. We like. --Dorianne Laux

Sebastian Matthews writes a poetry that is wonderfully, and unfashionably, human. In poems that explore love, nature, jazz, and the experiences of a white man in black culture, Matthews ventures boldly and open-heartedly into the world. --Dana Levin
