Peter Keating

20 Aug

In December the Cosmo-Slotnick Building was opened with great ceremony.  There were celebrities, flower horseshoes, newsreel cameras, revolving searchlights and three hours of speeches, all alike.

I should be happy, Peter Keating told himself–and wasn’t… Toohey watched him as he seized his drink and slumped in his seat.  “Wasn’t it grand?” said Toohey.  “That, Peter, is the climax of what you can expect from life.”
