Das alles sind zwar per definitionem Änderungen, aber die Änderungen, von denen ich hier spreche, sind solche, die andere verlangt haben: Lektoren, manchmal auch der Agent. Wenn ein Lektor sagt, etwas sei unklar - auch wenn man die Stelle schon zweimal umgeschrieben hat, um sie deutlich zu machen -, dann ist es gut, man versucht, sie noch deutlicher zu machen. Was dem Lektor nicht klar erscheint, wird vielleicht dem Leser ebenfalls nicht klar sein. " Die Polizeibeamten sind ihm entweder zu dumm, oder sie sind intelligent bis zu einem bestimmten Punkt, dann aber übersehen sie eine deutliche Spur - die natürlich den Helden zu Fall bringen würde, was vielleicht ja gerade das ist, was man nicht will.
Die gläserne Zelle kam nicht aus einer speziellen Idee, sondern entstand einfach aus dem Wunsch, ein solches Buch zu schreiben. Und das ist vielleicht nicht der schlechteste Grund für ein Buch. Der Keim einer Idee 1961 erhielt ich einen Brief von einem Mann, der im Mittleren Westen der USA im Gefängnis einsaß. Er war sechsunddreißig und saß wegen Urkundenfälschung, Einbruch und Nichteinhaltung von Bewährungsauflagen. Es war seine dritte Straftat, und als er mir schrieb, hatte er noch drei Jahre abzusitzen.
Also ging ich jetzt von Greenwich Village, wo ich wohnte, auf ein Polizeirevier in Lower Manhattan, das mir genannt worden war, und legte dem Beamten die gleiche Frage vor. Ich sagte ihm, was ich geschrieben hatte, und auch er bestätigte alles. Ich konnte also dem Redakteur von 'Cosmopolitan' berichten, die Story sei offiziell abgesegnet. In Der süße Wahn hatte ich ebenfalls ein Problem, das mit der Polizei zu tun hatte. Etwa auf Seite 180 hat der Held seine Sachen in Koffer und Kartons verpackt, die seinen richtigen Namen - Kelsey - tragen, sie müssen aber aus einem Haus abgeholt werden, in dem er unter dem Namen Neumeister gewohnt hat.
