Notes

From The Crooked Staircase (ARC p161):
‘From across the table, Jergen regards the twins and says, “Uncle
Ira is not Uncle Ira.”
‘He doesn’t know who chose these new key words. The sentence is from Invasion of the Body Snatchers by Jack Finney, a 1955 novel, twice filmed well, about an alien life form that perfectly mimics specific people, takes their place, and disposes of them. The analogy is not as apt as is the reference to the Condon novel, but not every Arcadian is as keen of wit as the late Dr. Shenneck.’
