Fiction. THE COMPLEAT MEMOIRRHOIDS is a vagabond autobiography, its episodes wandering around the world, around the arts, and in and through a near 80 years of varied experiences. It's comprised of 137 episodes, or memoirrhoids, stories that, like memories, rise unbidden and unpredictably to the surface of the consciousness of the text, the reader's experience of the book.
