RARA-AVIS: Savage Night

I finished reading Jim Thompson's classic whacko noir. An entertaining read. The freakish elements remind me of Flannery O'Connor and Harry Crews. (FO's first book, I see, was published in 1952, the year before JT's SAVAGE NIGHT.) The Black Lizard edition mentions a JT biography soon to be published. Did it appear in print and has anyone read it?
