"When I met Eliot I was a little unhinged myself--suffering from a disharmony of my personal spheres. There [were]... a number of difficult questions about home and identity that I had no idea how to answer (139).... [I]n Eliot's enormous, generously shared mental storehouse of the varieties of 'forbidden knowledge' I thought I'd found another way of making a bridge between here-and-there, between my two othernesses, my double unbelonging. In that world of magic and power there seemed to exist the kind of fusion of world-views, European Amerindian Oriental Levantine, in which I desperately wanted to believe" (141). From Salman Rushdie's "The Harmony of the Spheres" in East, West.
