Lucretia Stewart, "The Reunion," The Independent, October 30, 1999
Young Williams, poring over a road map, asks himself this very question: "Wasn't there another city besides Tulsa in Oklahoma? Wasn't there another state between Oklahoma and Mexico? He couldn't be sure, and the longer he looked at the map, the righter it looked."
And that is, of course, the best way to tell when someone has been tampering with your reality. It's the sense of jamais vu that Williams experiences; that feeling of "never having seen" something that by all logic you should know very well the opposite of déjà vu.
