Al and Ali,
I think my author was repeating the Algren rules. I read the Wikipedia
summary and there a ton of things happening in the Algren book that I
have absolutely no recollection of. That's no guarantee that I haven't
read it anyway, but I would've thought something would ring a bell. Now
I must add Walk on the Wild Side to my neverending list.
