"I think you are referrring to how he, as Richard Stark, decided in the morning to work on a Parker book as opposed to working on a Grofield one."

You're probably right. It would certainly make more sense that way.

I pulled out my copy of Murder Ink to see if the quote was in that book. It wasn't, but the round robin interview with 4 of Westlake's alter-egos is interesting and amusing, ending with Stark robbing the others at gunpoint.

There's a lot of interesting stuff in the book, including an article by Robert B Parker, "Marxism and the Mystery," and a guide (not by Parker),
"How to Tell Spade from Marlowe from Archer."
