This new collection poems, Sketches, is every bit as incisive as we have come to expect from Seb Doubinsky. His gentle words frequently cloak a barbed wit, and each of the poems in this book demands a response from the reader. If you are familiar with Doubinsky’s poetry, you will delight in what you read, if you are a newcomer you will have many surprises in store. All readers will, however, share the frisson of pleasure and the sense of revelation that only the best contemporary poetry can bring.
Seb Doubinsky was born in Paris and spent part of his childhood in the USA, an experience that indelibly marked him for life. He currently lives in Denmark with his wife and children. He writes fluently in both French and English and has published more than a dozen novels that blur the boundaries between literary fiction, science fiction and crime fiction, and a volume of short stories. His poetry has been published around the world to great acclaim and has been collected in at least eleven stand-alone volumes. He edited the bi-lingual literary magazine Le Zaporogue, publishes books under his Les Editions du Zaporogue imprint and is at work on at least one new novel.
