In the first part of the book there is a mention of an anagram Alison happened upon in the paper - where her name is the answer to "a better part of Nicholas" (you can make the word "Alison" out of the letters comprising "Nicholas"). At the end he understands that she, in the flesh, is really a part of him, and a better one at that.
