I read in an issue of the New Yorker, from somewhere between 2005 and 2007, a short story that, it was explained in a note, was taken from a larger body of work that was meant to be a novel. It was by a Jewish-American author. I got the feeling that he never got the recognition he deserved.
In the story a man has a mysterious job that brings him to a clandestine location made up of several rooms where another man also works, but for a separate agency. It ends with no conclusive resolution.
