And also, though unrelated, you may remember that the title of 'Diamond Dogs' was appropriated for the crime thriller by Alan Watt.
Named after David Bowie's celebrated seventies album, itself influenced by William Burrough's 'cut-up' writing method, this novel is both a thriller and an unconventional love story.
