The Character Exchange...

I just re-read LIAGB (and could go on and on about it's amazingness, but will attepmt to refrain from doing so) and noticed something... the unpublished book that Thursday hides out in is actually The Big Over Easy. I hadn't read it the first time I read LIAGB, but now I have and I saw that the character she exchanges with is Mary Mary. Mary talks about Jack and his Austin Allegro and other things in The Big Over Easy.

Just thought that was cool.

It even gets better with WOLP. Won't spoil it for you, but they are worth comparing directly in some places...

Jasper also speaks about the reasons behind this in the Special Features section for The Big Over Easy.
