The book is designed in the style of 'De kleine neurasthenicus'; the also reprinted self-help book (1922) by Dr. H.G. de Cock, which is considered a source of inspiration for 'De Avonden'. In this 'Beknopte handleiding tot ordentelijk leven', Reve also found the title of 'Het Boek van Violet en Dood'.
