Anybody know what the deal is with the "Larry the CPA" passage on pages 314-315 of The Talisman? Is it a reference to another SK book? It just seems totally random.
I'm talking about the guy who's driving in a car with his family and sees Jack at the side of the road and starts thinking of adventure.

....he's not referenced anywhere else I can recall-but here's my take...I always thought that Larry had a bit of "The Shine" about him, and picked up Jack's vibes which put his own thoughts into a winsome adventurous frame....

Yeah that's how I always took it also. That and the fact that Jack was so powerfully special that he had the ability to touch those around him without even realizing it.
