Eileen Cronin's Sit Down with Dagoberto Gilb Gets to the Heart of His Work
February 14, 2017 --Michelle Lange
“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 on the new anthology, The Right Way to be Crippled and Naked.
Dagoberto Gilb has won the Whiting award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the PEN/Hemingway Award, among others. His short stories have appeared often in The New Yorker and in Harper’s, such as the story included in The Right Way to be Crippled and Naked.Read the piece, featured in the Los Angeles Review of Books.
