RARA-AVIS: Thornburg's _The Lion at the Door_

From: Jacques Debierue ( matrxtech@yahoo.com)

Old hat to many, probably, but I hadn't read it until now (I thought I had read it...) This book impressed me even more than the other Thornburg's I had read. It is all of one piece and I read it in one long sitting. Noir and hardboiled in equal part, a brilliant book. I think was my only unread Thornburg; I have Cutter and Bone ready for reread, of course.

What is Thornburg's situation? A few months back somebody mentioned health problems, if I recall correctly.

Why has a writer this good not received more acclaim? Would it be possible to have him as a guest? My interest in him has definitely grown with this last read.
