Newton seems to be a gentleman of few words during an interview. Louise Guardino
(who did the interview) and I believe he lets his writing/work speak for him instead, which is totally understandable. We too, wished the interview was longer. But after finally locating him, we were gracious he gave us what is posted. Hope this helps.

If anyone on this list hasn't read CUTTER AND BONE yet, it's well worth your time. As you put it Terrill, Newton is one of the most underrated writers alive. Also, with the reprint from Serpent's Tale, included is an excellent introduction by George P. Pelecanos.
