About this title


Miracle Day: Mid-Life Songs, Sebastian MatthewsÆ second book of poems, explores the main themes of midlife—sex and death, marriage and parenthood, work and play, friends and foes, travel and staying put. Moving back and forth between couplets and the single-stanza poem, Matthews writes about the world he is immersed in, whether listening in on an impromptu barbershop quartet with his son or driving through urban Philadelphia on a misguided whim. Matthews continues his interest in jazz and musicians but has broadened his palate to include ruminations on everything from the 1948 summer session at Black Mountain College to Jack BennyÆs legendary corn-belt comedy routines.

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.
