- Locke and Ben both mention him in comparison to Dostoevsky (who wrote The Brothers Karamazov, see above).
- There are no real life references to Hemingway being jealous of Dostoevsky's work or feeling in his shadow. This may have been made up for the show for dramatic effect.
- Ben sarcastically tells Locke that he prefers King when given a copy of The Brothers Karamazov to read while in confinement.

- The Others' book club is reading and discussing Carrie, which he wrote (see above). ("A Tale of Two Cities")
