Psychologist at two New York City nursing homes, Thomas E. Heinzen has compiled an oral history in the form of poetry written by the residents, Many Things to Tell You. Interspersing his own comments on nursing homes and aging, he divides the work into sections with such titles as ""Curiosity,"" ""Personal Philosophy"" and the like. Novelist Harper Lee praises the collection as ""a book of great beauty and wisdom. Its authors may be uncertain of memory, but they have created a work that is unforgettable.""
