Jack Matthews (author)

Jack Matthews (author) Jack Matthews (22 July 1925 – 28 November 2013) was an American novelist, short story writer, essayist, playwright and former professor. He published 7 novels, 7 collections of short stories, a novella, and 8 volumes of essays. He was an avid book collector, and many of his book finds served as a basis for his essays and the historical topics he explored in his fiction. His 1972 novel ''The Charisma Campaigns'' was nominated by Walker Percy for the National Book Award. He has often made 19th century America and the Civil War period the setting for his fiction, starting with his 1981 novel ''Sassafras'' and most recently with the 2011 novel ''Gambler's Nephew'' (which tells the story of how an abolitionist accidentally kills an escaped slave) and a 2015 story collection ''Soldier Boys: Tales of the Civil War''. His plays have been performed at multiple theaters around the country. Provided by Wikipedia
