BIOGRAPHY:

Matthew Nolan graduated at the top of his class, and felt a huge pressure to move forward in academia. He found himself in New Orleans, and sold his home-printed books out of his bicycle basket on the street. Now the author of Crumpled Paper Dolls: A New Orleans Poet and Exhuming Juliet: A New Orleans Poet, he continues to write poetry, prose and journal articles for publication.
