Aaron Jacobs is the author of the novel The Abundant Life, which Samantha Bee called, "delightfully unique, hilarious, and acerbic." Other writing of his has appeared in Tin House, Alaska Quarterly Review, JMWW, Atticus Review, and elsewhere.

In his fiction, Jacobs explores the wayward American approach to life, which means he'll never run out of material. He studied writing at the University of Maryland, the 92nd Street Y, Sackett Street Writers' Workshop, Wesleyan Writers Conference, and the Tin House Summer Workshop.

He has worked as waiter in Key West, a bartender in Cork, Ireland, and a social studies teacher in the Bronx. Aaron also worked retail in Brooklyn, and now pays his bills by selling buses. An avid reader, he also likes Mexican food, bourbon and—God help him—the New York Knicks. He lives mostly in the Catskills with his wife, Katie, and their dog, Monty.
