«Anything for Jamie. So much devotion, and such pleasure in providing it. What does Billy want? Whatever Jamie wants. What pleases Billy? Whatever pleases Jamie. What absorbs attentive Billy? Jamie! Jamie! Delighting Jamie! Should that worshipful accord unbelievably never lose its power, lucky pair! But should she one day spurn his close attention, withhold her approbation, resist arousal by his passion, miserable, vulnerable, tenderized man! He’ll never spend a day without her without thinking of her fifty times. She’ll ride roughshod over her successors forever. He’ll think about her till he dies. He’ll think about her while he dies.»

Zuckerman about Billy in «Exit ghost», Philip Roth, Vintage, pp. 163
