    Having just discovered Horowitz (how could I have overlooked him?) by reading Magpie Murders, I searched high and low for information about him. Your interview jumped out. It’s wonderful — a great look into the books and mind of an ingenious storyteller. You’ve captured me as a fan of Writers on Writing. I’ll be reading and listening again… and again… and again.
