Dick Mallory is a book publisher. His office on the fortieth floor of a skyscraper in the center of New York City is the world he works in. The world he Uves in is a white house on a quiet Street in a suburb 30 miles from the big city. Whether he is at work in the heart of the big city or at home in the quiet suburb, Dick’s life is tied to machines. In many ways he represents modern man in the big city—modem man in the machine age.
In a typical working day, Dick and his wife are awakened by the buzzing of an electric alarm clock. As he pushes a button to silence the alarm, he turas on the radio beside his bed to hear the morning news. Then he goes to the bathroom for a quick shave with his electric shaver.
After dressing, Dick goes to the kitchen, where his wife has begun to prepare breakfast. Eggs are cooking on the electric stove, bread is being toasted in an electric toaster, and coffee is being made in an electric coffee maker. From the electric refrigerator Dick takes a cartón of cream, another of fresh milk, and a can of frozen orange juice. He opens the can with an electric can opener and mixes the contents with several cans of coid water. Thon the orange juice is ready, and Dick and his wife can begin breakfast. During breakfast, they sometimes watch the morning news program on televisión.
