So where does GW live? Is it Chicago?

Funnily enough, (because I only noticed it yesterday) in the Fifth Head
of Cerberus, he mentions a book called Monday or Tuesday, leaning against
a book on the assassination of Trotsky. Since the Trotsky book must have
been written by Trotsky's bodyguard, Bernard "Limbo" Wolfe, I presume 
we're meant to conclude that the other book, if they're filed
alphabetically, is by GW...
