Reviews

"Matthews's writing is bold, innovative and complex."--Washington Post
"Matthews is virtuosic, frantic, and darkly, very darkly, funny."--Dan Chiasson, New Yorker
"There's manic, witty energy throughout and delight in the play of form and language."--Library Journal
"[A] deft, shape-shifting debut. . . . Matthews surveys the possible responses to what seems ineluctable, offering a work of intrepid imagination, inquiry, and strength."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Matthews has earned a place in the accomplished company of Adrienne Rich and Muriel Rukeyser."--Booklist
"Simulacra . . . demonstrates how traditional text-based poetry is evolving and adapting to modern molds."--Pacific Standard
