Adam R. Mathews is a novelist and a teacher, a scientist and a cyclist. Equally at home managing language schools or running degrowth workshops, he is an incessant traveller and a keen localist.
After the concept of an all-pervasive corporation came to him while walking in Manchester’s Whitworth Park, Adam spent a decade stewing on his neo-liberal dystopia before he started to write. In that time he lived across Europe, from Budapest to Madrid, immersing himself in the cultures, quirks and social movements of his adopted homes.
Adam weaves his experiences into his writing, to make fiction that challenges the shortcomings of neo-liberalism. His first novel Pap came out in 2016, but the foundation tale PapRise is the book he always wanted to write. He recently moved back to the UK in order to promote his work.
