Trabert waited until the audience had left the basement cinema. Holding in his hand the commercial replica of agent Greer’s driving licence he had bought in the arcade near the overpass, he walked toward the young man sitting in the back row.

F. Scott Fitzgerald's Turkey Recipes

  • Turkey Cocktail: To one large turkey add one gallon of vermouth and a demijohn of angostura bitters. Shake.
  • Turkey à la Francais: Take a large ripe turkey, prepare as for basting and stuff with old watches and chains and monkey meat. Proceed as with cottage pudding.
  • Stolen Turkey: Walk quickly from the market, and, if accosted, remark with a laugh that it had just flown into your arms and you hadn't noticed it. Then drop the turkey with the white of one egg—well, anyhow, beat it.


“To make customers is the new problem.”
— Edward Bernays, in Propaganda, 1928
