Abstract

In the Park Avenue office of Dr. M. Tobias Parsimonious, New York's pre-eminent psychiatric practitioner on obsessive verbal compulsions, Mrs. Chauncey Van Snoot sits alone. It is midafternoon. From the examination room, connected to the office by a door next to the windows, where Dr. Parsimonious is examining her twelve-year-old son, Hillary, Mrs. Van Snoot hears muffled voices.
