Re: RARA-AVIS: Newton Thornburg

Terril, not long ago I picked up a copy of Thornburg's bank heist novel, Knockover. Great book. Intricate planning. Diverse team of thieves. Shootouts. Lots of drinking and smoking. A book well worth finding.

   Couldn't agree with you more, mrt. Thornburg is a true original. A terrific writer who appears to be nearly forgotten now. I know CUTTER AND BONE was reissued about a decade ago, but I think most of his other books are now out of print. Someone should come along and do trade paperbacks of all of them and get this guy the attention he deserves.
