Bernard Malamud, THE TENANTS, New York, Farrar, Strauss & Giroux, 1971

Lesser desperatly makes a final suggestion. "Why don't you send your manuscript to a publisher and get somebody else's opinion if you're not satisfied with mine?"
"Because I tried ten of those rat-brained Jews and they all turned it down for a lot of horseshit reasons, because they are afraid of what the book says."
The black, his eyes tumid, beats his head against Lesser's wall, as the writer, not withour pleasure, looks on.
(p. 75)
