Troubled Titan Peas (Quality . . . in a Jiff!)
the threat of atomic warfare hung over us constantly when I was a boy in
New York, clam capital of America, we didn’t think about annihilation all
the time. Sometimes we worried about war and rumors of war, it’s true,
but at other times we had other thoughts: we fell in love, pondered the
meaning of life,
and went about the mundane business of living it, and grown-ups tried to
calm the fears of their children by living ordinary lives and doing ordinary
things—going to work
and dusting the furniture and making us eat our peas.

your reading of At Home

urge you to read the
preliminaries and the
preface first, because
they are integral parts
of the work. —Mark Dorset)

The illustration at the top of the page is an adaptation of an illustration by Stewart Rouse that first appeared on the cover of the August 1931 issue of Modern Mechanics and Inventions. The boy at the controls of the aerocycle doesn’t particularly resemble Peter Leroy—except, perhaps, for the smile.
