Jon emailed us:

I was reading a book by Sebastian Faulks called A Week in December.

Toward the end of the last chapter [page 368] when Hassan, the would-be Islamic terrorist, is racked with doubt about committing an act of violence, a line from Edith and the Kingpin is used in the text.

"His left hand holds his right,
What does that hand desire?
That he grips it , so tight?"

Thank you, Jon!
