St. Francis Professor Publishes Second Novel

When Andrew Cotto is not dispensing advice and ideas on writing and literature as an English professor at St. Francis College, he is writing his own tales that cross a diversity of themes and genres.His second novel, Outerborough Blues: A Brooklyn Mystery (Ig) is a noir thriller that takes place before the borough has undergone recent gentrification.

Publishers Weekly, just one of several publications to favorably review Outerborough Blues, writes that Cotto, “shows a strong sense for character and place in a novel that reads like Raymond Chandler taking dictation from Walt Whitman.”

A resident of Carroll Gardens, Cotto published his first novel, The Domino Effect (Brownstone Editions), in 2011. He’s also contributed dozens of articles to national publications, including The New York Times, Men's Journal,, Teachers & Writers Magazine, and the Good Men Project. He earned an MFA in creative writing from The New School.
