Photocopied typescript of the stories in this collection, one of which (People Like These Are the Only People Here) was the O. Henry Award winner. This set of sheets was sent from a Random House representative to a bookseller in March 1998, six months prior to publication, to solicit advance comments. There are small textual differences between this version and the final, published version. The stories are individually page numbered rather than numbered as a collection. The photocopier misfired a few times, leaving blank strips on several pages and two pages combined into one, making both illegible. Otherwise the pages are fine, and the transmittal letter is included.Limited Edition ExcerptWho Will Run the Frog Hospital - University of Wisconsin Madison Libraries (1995), Images by Gretchen Hils.
