Author Stephen Dixon's first book, a collection of short stories, was written on a typewriter and published in 1976 when he was 40. That is all he has ever used, even for the 30 since. Considered a "writer's writer" who obsessively chronicles his own life in his many novels, he is retiring from Johns Hopkins University where he has taught creative writing for many years. He lives in Towson with his wife, Anne, who finally asked her husband to stop writing about his every reaction to her debilitating illness.
