What Are You Doing Coming Back – Monsieur Jacques?

I’d love to know when Jim first read The Master And Margarita. He’d obviously done by 1983 for Up On The Catwalk to be influenced by it. So, perhaps earlier than that? As early as 1979/80? I’m sure it’s all coincidence. But in this bit there is a corpse arriving to a ball called Monsieur Jacques. I couldn’t help but think of the line from Thirty Frames A Second, “Some friends of mine I thought were dead are coming back. What are you doing coming back, Jack?!” 

Just another observation…
