Short biography
Newton Kendall Thornburg was born in Harvey, Illinois in 1929 and lived most of his early life in Chicago Heights, a suburb south of the major city. In 1986 his "lovely long marriage" to Karin, his wife of 33 years, ended when she died, he has lost a beloved son to alcoholism and in 1998 Thornburg suffered a stroke that has left him paralysed down his left side. Living with government help in a retirement home near Seattle, he is wheelchair bound, unable to walk, even the most simple tasks a trial. "Sometimes", he tells me early on, "it takes me a while to get to the phone."
