Host Terri Lynn Coop serves up author, blogger, and photographer Gabino Iglesias on The Blue Plate Special.
"Call him the Barrio Palahniuk, a badass Henry Miller, Charles Willeford in Cholo-land--whatever the moniker, for my money Gabino Iglesias is one of the most fearless, original and riveting writers working today. If there's any justice on this hellhole of a planet, Zero Saints--an instant, wild-ass classic--should launch its author far from outlier status into the wet, palpitating heart of contemporary literature. This is a fierce, nasty, beautiful, sucker-punch of a novel. You'd be an idiot not to read it immediately." - Jerry Stahl, author of Permanent Midnight and I, Fatty
Gabino Iglesias hides near a dumpster in Austin, Texas, where he works as a freelance journalist and convinced a college to give him a PhD. His nonfiction has appeared in places like The New York Times, Z Magazine, El Nuevo Día, and others. The stuff that's made up has been published in Red Fez, Flash Fiction Offensive, Drunk Monkeys, Bizarro Central, Paragraph Line, Divergent Magazine, Cease, and Cows. When not writing or fighting ninja squirrels, he devours books and spits out reviews that have been published in Verbicide, The Rumpus, Word Riot, Heavy Feather Review, The Lazy Fascist Review, Bookslut, Electric Literature, Atticus Review, Entropy, HorrorTalk, Necessary Fiction, The Magazine of Bizarro Fiction, Out of the Gutter, Spinetingler Magazine, and Buzzy Mag.
