Tracking an Author: Aaron Gilbreath

This week I decided to track Aaron Gilbreath, best known for one of his recently published collection of essays, Everything We Don’t Know. I was inspired to explore Gilbreath’s work further because I appreciate his knack for candidacy and conversational tone, coupled with his ability to discuss hard-learned life lessons in an endearing and honest manner. Prior to having his essays published by Curbside Splendor just last year, Gilbreath was published in several venues including Harper’s, The New York Times, the Paris Review, Vice, The Morning News, Saveur, Tin House, The Believer, Kenyon Review, Slate, Virginia Quarterly Review, Narratively, The Threepenny Review, and Brick. I believe Gilbreath’s career as a journalist has shaped his writing in ways that have enabled his personal essays to excel and gain such popularity, likely explaining the breadth of venues in which his work has been published.
