63: Jordan Castro 3


COLLEGE PARK MD — Jordan Castro is the editor of New York Tyrant Magazine and the author of The Novelist, forthcoming from Soft Skull in 2022. We spoke this past Sunday, 13 June 2021, at his spot in Maryland after I drove down from NYC to hang with him a couple days. Jordan and I got especially close over the past couple months after losing our friend, the editor and publisher Gian DiTrapano. Jordan also helped me a lot in the aftermath of the passing my girlfriend, the writer Kyra Baldwin, not long before the passing of Gian this past March.
