I don't want to give too much away by saying what else is in there but...I did find a couple of things that have me scratching my head because they have nothing to do with novel.
1). Articles explaining how to break into a car.
Anyway, I can confidently say The Lighter Side of Life and Death doesn't feature any car break-ins. Also, Abbie Hoffman does not appear (nor is he referenced) during the pages of this book. I hope this news doesn't disappoint anyone.
Here are some other things that don't appear in the novel:
* Elizabeth Bennet (of Pride and Prejudice fame)
* Time Lords, talking apes and evil aliens
* alternative rocker and political activist Billy Bragg (although I really should work him into a book)
* chocolate bunnies (however, there is one reference to chocolate and two references to rabbits)
