Ken Follet's Amusing References

In Night Over Water, the story begins with “Standing on the dock at Southampton…” which is the beginning lyric of The Ballad of John and Yoko, right?

In his latest novel Fall of Giants based in 19th century England, 2 of the main characters have a baby whom they named George, but have nicknamed him “Boy”.

Get it?:wink:

So I’m wondering - I haven’t read all of his books - but is this his little literary “joke” and does he do this on a regular basis.

Any other references like those?
