When Hosty is interviewing George / Jake in his hotel room he refers to Angleton at the Firm (CIA I assume) as a "Sly, rose growing bastard that he is." Angleton was a real person I believe but the rose growing reference would frame him as some kind of force for good maybe.

The whole idea of the book (going back in time to prevent Kennedy's assassination) is actually present in Wolves of the Calla. Callahan says he's been thinking for a long time of using Black 13 to get to 1963, find out if Oswald acted on his own and maybe prevent him from killing Kennedy. Then Eddie looks at him and asks "what if you did it and changed things for the worse ?". Pretty much sums up the whole book. Plus Callahan uses the expression "watershed moment" to talk about Kennedy's assassination, which occurs a few times in 11/22/63. And the last connection I found is the "white over red" cars: Callahan escaped low men driving such a car while he was travelling the highways in hiding and Sadie's ex-husband is also driving a white over red car.

The author uses a quote at the beginning of 11/22/63 from Thomas Wolfe's ''Look Homeward Angel''. In Look Homeward Angel, the main Character is named Eugene Gant. Eugene is basically a version of Wolfe and, Look Homeward Angel is a quasi fictional/nonfictional book based on the authors life... Thomas also wrote ''You Can't Go Home Again''.. This book is another version of Look Homeward Angel and the main character is named George Webber... In 11/22/63, Jakes alias in the past is George... This is how authors talk to each other..
