An Englishman in New York saves a girl from a speeding coupe with fish hooks on its fender. He finds himself attracted and repelled by the girl in this classic story of future shock from a science-fiction grand master.

Even the title is a metaphor!

Although this short story is in fact well written and well read, the story itself was nothing more than a string of metaphors of future possibilities with no real direction, plot or even any plausible point or meaning that can leave one going "Hmmmm!". In essence, I simply did not get much out of this short journey, up to and including entertained, I'm afraid.
