The reason a lot of people do not recognize opportunity is because it usually goes around wearing overalls looking like hard work.
— Thomas A. Edison

The writer has a grudge against society, which he documents with accounts of unsatisfying sex, unrealized ambition, unmitigated loneliness, and a sense of local and global distress. The square, overpopulation, the bourgeois, the bomb and the cocktail party are variously identified as sources of the grudge. There follows a little obscenity here, a dash of philosophy there, considerable whining overall, and a modern satirical novel is born.
— overalls quotation by Renata Adler
