>that the LSO has a cellist who is just as I'd imagined Thomas Lynn.

That's spooky, since Tom already has an alter ego in Tom Piper. It's always
easy to visualise DWJ's characters, but with some other writers I have
trouble. For example, I really enjoyed Pamela Dean's TAM LIN but I never
really got a feel for her characters.
