Maybe we already mentioned this and I totally missed it, but I was googling IJ and ran across the “poor yorick” passage in Hamlet. We noticed the connection with the movie production company in the footnotes, but I just realized that the title of the book might be derived from this passage as well:
|Let me see.[Takes the skull.]Alas, poor Yorick!–I knew him,|
|Horatio; a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy: he|
|hath borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how abhorred|
|in my imagination it is!
