Sometimes, I think I’m in competition with Condalmo and Darby M. Dixon III to report on the latest in Stephen Dixon’s literature. It’s a good race to be in. Anyway, Darby points me to a new, very short story by Dixon entitled “Wife in Reverse,” over at Matchbook. It’s a 441-word distillation of a novel-in-progress, and it is devastating. Between May’s forthcoming story collection and this novel (for now, titled His Wife Leaves Him), it’s clear that the old master is still hard at work. For that, if nothing else today, I’m grateful.
