Matthew Ryan Frankel


Matthew Ryan Frankel lives in Baltimore, Maryland. He would like to acknowledge his friends, his former teachers, and the staff of Enoch Pratt Central Library for their support, as well as the writers whose influence shaped the story printed here: Jean Genet, Yasunari Kawabata, and Kenzaburo Oë. His current projects include several short stories, a novel, and a philosophical work on radical freedom. “Carapace” is dedicated to his grandfather, Khye Weng Ng.
