Summary: Arthur is an excellent pointman. In truth, the best.
Before that, he was an excellent forger. (In truth? He wasn’t.)

The Bitter Glass

I really liked this! It’s a little hard to get into the narrative at first, but it works well for the story. I loved Mal’s voice in this and the background created. It’s such an interesting idea that Arthur was a forger first.

“We should all be able to, technically, right.” Eames asked-and-didn’t-ask. Rhetorical, Arthur thought, just in time to stop himself from answering as Eames continued, “Yet even in natural dreams, it’s rare. You can be anyone you want to be, no restrictions, but fact of the matter is that we believe there are; we think of the world in terms of ourselves, and don’t want to cross outside of it.”

“But forgers do.”

“No. Good ones don’t. And we shouldn’t,” he added, taking his glass but not drinking. He swirled it around, as if looking for something. “That’s the trick,” he said. “To know that you can cross, and that you shouldn’t.”

That part, right there!!! Probably one of the best parts of the story.
