In 2009 he received the PEN New England Discovery Award in Nonfiction. Last fall, Boss Fight Books published Super Mario Bros. 2, his first book. The best gelato he ever tasted is on Lygon Street in Melbourne, Australia.
Gabe Durham is the founder, editor, and publisher of Boss Fight Books. His novel FUN CAMP was one of BuzzFeed’s 17 Books We Loved in 2013. He lives in Los Angeles, CA.
Gabe served as Editor of Keyhole Magazine and Dark Sky Magazine, and his own writing has appeared in many venues in print and online, including The Rumpus, Daytrotter, The Literary Review, and The Brooklyn Rail. Sometimes he teaches college writing and literature. He loves disc golf, improv, songwriting, smoothies, sushi, The National, There Will Be Blood, Arrested Development, Adventure Time, and dogs.
For the first week after Gabe got Super Mario Bros., he played standing up. Whenever he pressed the button to make Mario jump, Gabe would physically jump right along with him. (He figured maybe it would help.)
