Keith asked:

Towards the end of the novel there was the part where McGrath's film professor frenemy was explaining his cats' names and how they related to Cordova and his films, with most of them representing a certain reoccurring trope or theme Cordova used. Can people list what characters or occurrences from the book they associate with the different cat name/trope?
