His perfectionism has remained, grown even stronger. ?There are just pages and pages. It?s a bloodbath,? he says, his mood dipping as he begins to talk about how hard it is to write well. ?I throw away so much.? Eugenides clearly doesn?t like to be pegged as the slow guy, especially when there are others?Franzen, notably, but also Junot Díaz and Marilynne Robinson and Edward P. Jones?who take their time, sometimes even more. But he knows no other way to do it. ?I never can plan my novels. So I have to live the experience of the book with the characters while I?m writing it. And understand where the possibilities of the plot will go.?

When Kodak finally entered consumer photography in force, at the end of the 1990s, it did so as a dominant brand in a growing market. They produced cameras that were forerunners technologically and in 2003 were best sellers ? but, crushingly, had to sell them to consumers at a loss of up to sixty dollars apiece.

Even if Kodak went into [digital] wholeheartedly, things would remain the same,? says Anderson. ?It?s a fact that they were too early, and inevitably doomed.?

He told my boss to tell me to stop writing computer proposals, because Kodak would never be a computer peripheral company?not on his watch, at least.? Undeterred, Sucy continued developing products using a clandestine approach, giving them code names that ?didn?t sound like computer products.? The subterfuge helped them bring some experimental products to market, but then they encountered a new problem they hadn?t expected: No matter what they came up with, nothing digital would sell. To consumers, everything was too expensive, and to professionals, the quality was not yet good enough.

as exciting as the work was, it led to frustration and a disconnect between executives and employees. ?One of the things that always drove me crazy,? Rubin remembers, ?was when a proposal was denied because either somebody else was doing it, or nobody else was doing it. There was no wiggle room?[unless] Fuji was doing it too.?

To the people in the trenches, like Demoulin, the failure always comes back to the same key error: Kodak, they say, suffered from a fundamental breakdown between, on one side the engineers and tinkerers ? many of whom saw the digital future clearly and fought to bring it forth ? and on the other the top management, whose interest remained fixed on molecules and the miracle of near-monopoly profits.

According to his numbers, a roll of film that cost one dollar to produce was marked up 800 percent, which allowed the company to generate its enormous profits. This drove the company?s growth, he argued, but eventually it turned into a trap when managers, addicted to the revenue, ignored clear signs that the market was shifting to digital and the end of the old way was in sight. ?They were in denial all the way,? he says. ?They didn?t want to give up a 90 percent market in film to have a 10 to 20 percent market in consumer electronics.?

How is it that big, established companies fail to recognize and seize new opportunities? When I first started wondering about this problem and what had happened at Kodak, I e-mailed Raymond Demoulin.
