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."

Seb and 3 other people liked Scott's review of In Losers' Heaven/Doctor Google:
In Losers' Heaven/Doctor Google by Seb Doubinsky
"Long form poems by Seb Doubinsky and Justin Grimbol that are humourous, existential and search for meaning in the abstract. Full of wonderful lines and images throughout and well worth checking out."
