Michael J. Coffino, J.D. ’79

June 8, 2020

Michael J. Coffino, J.D. ’79, writes: “After 40 years of law practice and 25 parallel years as a high school basketball coach, I became a professional writer. Since then, I have authored and co-authored eight published books. The most recent is my debut (and award-winning) novel, Truth Is in the House, a work of historical fiction. It tells the tale of two teenage boys—one of color from Jim Crow Mississippi, the other an Irish immigrant—who flee with their families to the Bronx in the 1960s after nightmarish tragedies bring death to their personal worlds and drive them to find common ground over the course of their adult lives.”
