"A sudden illumination: I had a trade after all. I would set up a cultural investigation agency, be a kind of private eye of learning. Instead of sticking my nose into all-night dives and cathouses, I would skulk around bookshops, libraries, corridors of university departments. Then I'd sit in my office, my feet propped on the desk, drinking, from a dixie cup, the whiskey I'd brought up from the corner store in a bag. The phone rings and a man says: Listen I'm translating this book and came across something or someone called Motakallimun. What the Hell is it? Give me two days I tell him. Then I go to the library.... ...I had a strict rule, which I think secret services follow, too: No piece of information is superior to any other. Power lies in having them all on file and then finding the connections. There are always connections; you have only to want to find them."
