anthony.powell kc.constantine quotes

“I mean, bureaucrats get pissed when you tell ‘em they’re bureaucrats. I mean, bureaucrats are the people who think bureaucrats are the people who work across the hall.”

Nick Myushkin, the Mad Russian, holding forth at Muscotti’s in Bottom Liner Blues (1993) by K.C. Constantine. (In any comparison of the Mario Balzic series to Anthony Powell’s A Dance to the Music of Time, put Myushkin with X. Trapnel.)
