Ishmael is a dolphin employed by the vapor collection plant on St Croix. He can communicate with humans, and he can use computers. He finds humans very strange and perplexing, but he's fallen in love with one of them. This story is his resume, dictated into a computer, pleading for her affections. Quite an enjoyable read.
