Are there any Newton Thornburg fans here?

************** Oh yeah! I've only read CUTTER AND BONE, but I loved it. Dialogue is an excellent gauge of an author's capabilities, and Thornburg's was sharp, piercing, and intelligent. Plot-wise it might not have been the best, but that doesn't bother me much. Some of the best stuff I've ever read didn't have much of a plot to it. There's a movie version that starts out fairly true to the book, even using some of the same dialogue, but it goes downhill as it progresses and ends up a vapid failure.

Good to hear someone ring in on his other books. I'll keep the ones you recommended in mind.
