Dr Lewis Nordan seduced me and others into Pitt MFA via his readings at Hemingways Cafe. Few masters could read like Buddy and his stories will not go gentle into our good night. He was a generous and good-hearted teacher. He could quote Shakespeare and Flannery O'Connor at length. He could teach modern fiction, Writer To Writer. He taught us how to read like a writer. His lecture on Julia Alvarez made her mandatory reading for every listener. His remarks on Faulkner went to the heart of the master. How do you acknowledge a busy master from across campus? I took my cue from Garcia Marquez when he saw Hemingway in Paris across the Champs Elysee and he hollered out one word and that word was ''Maestro."
