I think the writer of Raising the Griffin may have written that partly as an homage to this. Except that the situations of the protagonists are reversed. (I don't want to say more for fear of spoiling either or both books for those who haven't read them.) The name Ivor being important in both books is making the "not a coincidence" light blink rapidly in my brain.

When attempting to actually read this, I suffered from, well, the things that have happened in reading and writing since this was published. Because of being genre savvy I knew what was going to happen, and it felt like Burnett wasn't giving it to me quickly enough.
