The Right Way to be Crippled and Naked

Edited by Sheila Black, Michael Northen & Annabelle Hayse


When you′re disabled, you don′t have to be naked to be naked.
When you understand that, fiction becomes truth. 

This collection welcomes you to the worlds of the disabled: 
physically, mentally, emotionally. What does disabled mean, anyway? 


The Right Way to be Crippled and Naked

From Cinco Puntos Press



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

“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.

Passing My Disability on to My Children

“Pain — both physical and psychic — is a part of my two younger kids’ daily experience, and it is the part that is hardest for me to get over.”
