Another Star Writer

Antonya Nelson is a star writer with a New Mexico connection. More than a connection, really. She teaches at New Mexico State University and lives in Las Cruces when she is not living in Telluride and Houston. Nelson's story, "First Husband," is in the current issue of The New Yorker.
My cue for some research was a mention in the story of "The Duke City."
Nelson's seventh short story collection is to be published next spring. She appears to be yet another of those national class one-person businesses that the powers that be don't know exists.
