Historias is Carlos Mock’s latest musings on his past seen through his imagination. A set of short stories ranging from childhood jokes to life and deathsituations. Carlos was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and migrated north in his twenties. He has been active in the LGBT community for many years primarily in Chicago. In addition to his books, he has written op-ed pieces for Chicago Tribune and Windy City Times among others.
Carlos Mock adds a new title to his growing bookshelf of unforgettable stories from his Puerto Rican roots – his gallery of relatives, his personal coming-out. This one is skillfully sutured together with vivid historias from his career as an obstetrician.” – Patricia Nell Warren, Author.
“Historias is Carlos Mock’s most personal and intimate book, and I believe his best yet. These short stories, some barely more than anecdotes, resonate powerfully, with their mixture of revelation, symbolism, and Caribbean folklore. His autobiographical and medical tales are unique and compelling.” – Felice Picano, Author.
