Christina Chiu ReadingOn December 2nd, Honors students were treated to a special reading by Prof. Christina Chiu, who will be teaching a course on Creative Fiction in the Spring 2016 semester. During this joint event with the English Department in the Honors Lounge, Prof. Chiu read a chapter from her new novel The Ultimate Closet, a coming of age story about a girl whose father leaves the family to start a life in China with another woman. The overall novel takes us to different points in the protagonist’s life (ranging from age 4 to 86), and explores the impact of her parents’ behavior—her father’s narcissism in particular—as well as how it plays out behaviorally in her life. Prof. Chiu spoke with the audience about the process of writing, and we all enjoyed welcoming her to YU.
