My name is Matt Grant, and I'm a writer.
I write about all kinds of things, from personal essays and investigative features to all forms of culture - books, movies and television.
I'm also a staff writer at Literary Hub, where I write features and profiles on booksellers and bookstores.
Need a copywriter or content marketer for your blog or website? Yep, I do that too!
When Bison Attack - The Smart Set
“Before Yellowstone, I never thought about the murderous qualities of buffalo. After Yellowstone, it was all I could think about.”
In my next personal essay published in The Smart Set, I write about a harrowing encounter with bison at Yellowstone National Park and how, when it comes to nature, we are never quite the victims we think we are.
In the inevitable times of confusion, anger, and pain that follow an unexpected loss, I’ll never forget what Joan Didion wrote in The Year of Magical Thinking. I read it years ago, long before any of this happened. In order to not feel so alone after her husband died of a heart attack, Didion turned to books.
I read a lot of literary fiction, which I really enjoy. As much I like these books, I often have to ask myself: what gives with all the adultery?
