Synopsis:
  • "the memoirs of a sentient (though immobile) Doll ... Hitty is a singular example of a doll who does not want to be human and her story provides interesting commentary on the joys and liabilities of Immortality." (underscore represents linked cross-reference) --Encyclopedia of Fantasy
  • Hitty's immobility is crucial to the plot recurrently but it is not strict. Initially she takes up the pen to write her memoirs on paper. When dropped under a church pew, she raises and lowers her legs to "thump" for attention.
