>• Clive’s story is full of musical references. Helpfully, each chapter starts with “suggested listening.” Among Thornton’s picks:

1. JESUS JONES, “LIQUIDIZER.” Clive plots to meet his neighbor.

2. JANE’S ADDICTION, “RITUAL DE LO HABITUAL.” Posing as a veterinary assistant, he meets Lance.

3. NIRVANA, “INCESTICIDE.” Clive contemplates unemployment: “a full-time job in itself.”

4. POP WILL EAT ITSELF, “THIS IS THE DAY, THIS IS THE HOUR, THIS IS THIS.” Clive deals with the fallout of his ruse.
