Fernando Coronil

Fernando Coronil, a wonderful person I would have liked to see more of in this lifetime, awaits us now over Jordan, as it is said. Axé, Fernando.

Laurent Dubois writes: His favorite place to write was in a hammock, either the one suspended in his office or the one on his front porch, with his laptop and books and papers around him. If there is more justice in the next world than in this one, Fernando is now happily ensconced in just such a hammock, thinking, talking, in the midst of a gathering of family, friends, and strangers, taking everything in, already dreaming of changing it.

For some time there has been a note on the wall of my office saying: “Restart research project [X], then call Coronil.” We will meet by and by.
