Kent Nussey received his M.A. in Creative Writing in 1981 from Syracuse University, where he is now a part-time instructor in the English Department. His fiction tends to reflect a concern for the wedding of popular culture to the old rooted American obsessions with religion and money. "Listening" is from an unpublished collection of the same name. He is currently at work on a novel. Mr. Nussey is one of the nation's four recipients of the 1983 Wallace Stegner Fellowship for fiction. The award is given by Stanford University, where he will teach a graduate workshop in fiction writing next year.
