Wouldn't want to give it away. Recall, also, that the debate about whether whales are fish or mammals occupied an entire chapter of the book. So the word "fish" was a bit of a clue.

You could walk up and down the main drive any Thursday in the week till doomsday and never meet an expansive soul. Sixty or seventy thousand people — perhaps more — wrapped in woolen underwear and nowhere to go and nothing to do. Turning out mustard by the carload.

Movie trivia: I believe that book makes a "cameo appearance" in a diner scene in Scorsese's After Hours.
