                        Reflections on Bellow, Updike and DeLillo

Players: "He went to the smoking area, where he saw Frank McKechnie standing at the edge of a noisy group, biting skin from his thumb."
The Names (about Frank Volterra): "He wore dark glasses and kept biting skin from the edge of his thumb.”
Cosmopolis: “He sat down and looked at Chin, who was biting dead skin at the side of his thumbnail.”
Point Omega: “ “Bites the skin off the edge of his thumbnail, always the right thumb, still do it, loose piece of dead skin, that’s how I know who I am.” “
