"He slaps them down not like aces up his sleve, but like a fortune-teller, with a sharp snap of the corner. His prints are approximately the size of a Tarot card, a little too big to fit the hand; he has torn them into squares with his own fingers.

Rather, he says, "it's a way of evening the field, of making me their equal. Most of the time, I know these people, I asked about them, I read them, saw their films, heard their records. They, on the other hand, know nothing about me. So, I introduce myself."
