Amy Spector asked Al Stewart:

When reading your work, it is hard for one not to instantly recognize the heavy influence of Rockwell's 1984 debut song 'Somebody's Watching Me'. Is this just an accidental byproduct of playing the song on a loop as you write, or is this a thread we can expect to see through all your books, tying the stories loosely together? And, are you listening to it now?

Al Stewart Hi Amy,
I always feel like, somebody's watching me.
And I have no privacy.

When I go home at night
I lock the door reaaal tight.

Yes, yes. Yes!

I was very influenced by Rockwellls collars, and also his use of antique furniture.
Both of these things feature heavily in my pieces of literature.

Are you watching me ?
Al Stewart
