Stickeney is not precisely a human, but a supernormal being who is amiable enough if well fed and kept away from visiting literary firemen. As was to be expected, Miss Clingerman understands Stickeney and his prejudices; completely unexpected is the deadpan hilarity with which she tells Stickeney's heartrending story.
