Stephen Dixon

Stephen Dixon (b. 1936, NYC) graduated from the City College of New York in 1958 and is a retired faculty member of Johns Hopkins University. He is also a two time National Book Award nominee — for his novels Frog and Interstate — and his work has been selected for four O. Henry Prizes, two Best American selections, three Pushcart Prizes, one Best Stories of the South, two stories in the Norton Anthology of American Literature, and possibly more he's too modest to list. He still hammers out his fiction on a vintage typewriter.
