I've never heard that one before. Thornburg is probably my favorite noir writer (along with Charles Willeford), but I know very little about him. It seems that he had already left Santa Barbara and moved to Missouri (where he lived for 5 years) by the time he started writing CUTTER AND BONE.

There's an interesting article about him here:
