Biographical Note
The Mississippi native's stories are set in the heart of the Mississippi Delta and have recurring themes and characters, focusing on modern reality while tying in the larger-than-life stories of the past. Nordan is not influenced by Latin-American writers such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who also use magical realism in their stories, although Nordan is familiar with their works. "Welcome to the Arrow-Catcher Club," "The All-Girl Football Team" and "Sugar Among the Freaks" are a few of Nordan's short-story collections. Nordan's works have been received with praise from the "New York Times Book Review" and have been published in "The Southern Review," Greensboro Review," "Harper's" and "Redbook."
