I was never in the bureaucracy, always in the theater, ive consciously tried not to romanticize anything, especially not intelligence work. Ive always said that Ive been writing a series of episodic, naturalistic novels. The people just happen to be spies, politicians, civil servants. If pediatricians lived lives in which the manipulation of emotions were the tools of the trade, I probably would have written about them.
