I was born in Paris, in 1963, right in the middle of a western movie, of which my parents never saw the end. I have thereafter split my life between France and the USA, having spent most of my early childhood in Syracuse, and Seattle. After some studies, a lot of wandering and a few strange jobs, I have finally found myself teaching French literature in Denmark, where I have been living since 2007.

"DANGEROUS MINDS" INTERVIEW

"Imagine Kurt Vonnegut and Philip K Dick filtered through Burroughs and Brautigan, Ballard and Kerouac. Or put it this way: Sébastien Doubinsky is among the most important authors writing today, arguably in some realities the most important writer working today."
