The strangest connections come up between books sometimes – and it’s even stranger when it’s two separate coincidences between the same two books.
God Lives in St. Petersburg -> Drink, Play, F@#k: children of diplomats
Juliet, Naked -> Local: 7/4 (I guess this is a type of music? All I know is that it’s a time signature).
The Store -> Lamb in His Bosom: kids shouting “Christmas gift!” – appears to be a Southern regional tradition
Honey in the Horn -> Tintin vol. 1: tracking a footprint with missing nails/ a broken horseshoe
A Gate at the Stairs -> The Yearling: eating bear liver
Sag Harbor -> What the Dead Know: the game “7 minutes in heaven”; Road Warrior
New World Monkeys -> Her Fearful Symmetry: characters procrastinating on a thesis
Her Fearful Symmetry -> I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings: tooth extraction
Her Fearful Symmetry -> Girl in a Blue Dress: Highgate Cemetery
Girl in a Blue Dress -> Something Wicked This Way Comes: amber stickpin in necktie
New World Monkeys -> Guns, Germs, and Steel: New World monkeys
