Although the following biography is written in the third person, I am ashamed to admit I wrote it myself. I’m trying to instill a sense of distance that, I assume, will only add to my validity.
Matthew Revert is an author of disturbing nonsense. His writing explores the absurdity of everyday life and the hopelessness of being human. Themes of sexual failure, body horror, destructive relationships and gender identity often play a roll in his work. This is intermingled with a thread of dark tragicomedy. He’s basically a filth-monger with heart.
His first book, A Million Versions of Right, was released in 2009 by LegumeMan and earned a Wonderland Book award nomination. It has garnered a strong following amongst the mustard set and has received praise for its width. In 2010, stories from A Million Versions of Right (as well as new work) appeared in the Bizarro Starter Kit (purple).
His second book, The Tumours Made Me Interesting, was released in November 2011 and has been receiving mega hype.
Matthew resides in Melbourne, Australia, which makes him Australian. Outside of writing, he works as a graphic designer and spends time recording music under a variety of aliases. He is also in charge of the Spontaneous Vox Pop Society, having just completed a successful season of trouser-related questions.
