Exhuming Juliet: a New OrLeANs poet is a collection of poetry, love letters, and journals that lead you through an intense, provocative, highly sensitive world. Nolan surveys for truth in love relationships by performing a number of messy autopsies. Sometimes he examines family, Hurricane Katrina, and the dreamlike world of New Orleans, but mostly, he enjoys dissecting the Juliets. Peek at his findings and feel yourself staring in wonder at the sensual beauty. Dare to inspect closer, and you will recoil back in your chair while turning the page for the next glimpse.

Crumpled Paper Dolls: a New OrLeANs poet is a book of poetry, prose, and journals. Matthew Nolan ignites our senses, depicts the world without filters, demands examination and self-reflection. With the vivid imagery of words, he holds a mirror to our face and makes us see all we hide away. This at first seems like a distortion, but is really an honesty that makes us uncomfortable. Nolan’s journals chronicle the struggle of a man pursuing his dream in a world of trials and a mind of dark shadows. In Nolan’s writing, nothing is good or bad. It just is. His writing takes us to a place we don't want to talk about, but now may be willing to discuss.
