Excellent news for Jordan Coriza (fiction ’08), whose story, “Garcia and Sons,” has been published in the Chicago Quarterly Review!
“García and Sons” is a story that came to me through the image of caskets floating down the streets of Buenos Aires during a flood. The protagonist, Agustín, is a boy that recurs in several of my stories. He is trying to make sense of his father’s abandonment and, in the process, realizes that in spite of the traumatic experience he can grow up to be okay.
Jordan Coriza is from Argentina, the primary inspiration and setting for his fiction. A longtime resident of Boston, Jordan currently makes a living as a communications director for an international development nonprofit. He’s at work on a collection of short stories and a novel.
