Zevon's Excitable Boy came out in 1978. I just looked it up in Nolan's bio and Zevon did meet Macdonald, through rock writer Paul Nelson (among many other things; isn't he PK Dick's and Theodore Sturgeon's literary executor?). Supposedly, Zevon's childhood was like those in many of Macdonald books. He once said, "I was that kid in The Zebra-Striped Hearse."
