Harry Mathews (born February 14, 1930) is an American author of various novels, volumes of poetry and short fiction, and essays. Harry Mathews was the first American chosen for membership in the French literary society known as the Oulipo, which is dedicated to exploring new possibilities in literature, in particular through the use of various constraints and algorithms. The late French writer Georges Perec, likewise a member, was a good friend, and the two translated some of each other's writings. Mathews considers many of his works to be Oulipian in nature, but even before he encountered the society he was working in a parallel direction. Mathews is currently married to the writer Marie Chaix and divides his time between Paris, Key West, and New York.
"The Journalist is essentially a reworking of Michel Butor's classic nouveau roman, Degres (1960)." -- Library Journal
