An eclectic collection, this book contains eight stories: By the Turtles of Tasman, The Eternity of Forms, Told in the Drooling Ward, The Hobo and the Fairy, The Prodigal Father, The First Poet, Finis, and The End of the Story. Of these, Told in the Drooling Ward is often considered the most memorable. "Me? I'm not a drooler. I'm the assistant, I don't know what Miss Jones or Miss Kelsey could do without me. There are fifty-five low-grade droolers in this ward, and how could they ever all be fed if I wasn't around? I like to feed droolers. They don't make trouble. They can't. Something's wrong with most of their legs and arms, and they can't talk. They're very low-grade. I can walk, and talk, and do things." (Told in the Drooling Ward)
