Here's a little something from the "front matter" of THE HUCKSTERS: "'I won't lure any woman into the same trap I'm in,' he told Jean... Jean of the bright red hair, and the thirty-dollar brassieres." Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! It's the "of" that makes it funny. And the dramatic comma. As we know from the previous "post" the protagonist has a thirty-five dollar tie. This author is really interested in clothes that cost around thirty dollars.
