Eileen Cronin's Sit Down with Dagoberto Gilb Gets to the Heart of His Work Eileen Cronin's Sit Down with Dagoberto Gilb Gets to the Heart of His Work
February 14, 2017

“Today it seems particularly relevant to sit down with a writer who worked in construction, who built a career of exploring the everyday life of East Angeleno men struggling to build their version of the American Dream, and who now physically struggles to read and write,” writes Eileen Cronin in the introduction to her long-form interview with Dagoberto Gilb. The two talk about his work, his experience with disability, and the new anthology, The Right Way to be Crippled and Naked.

Read the piece, featured in the Los Angeles Review of Books.

"Words should fly like airplanes over custom offices and international borders, and should land in all the fields" - Vicente Huidobro
