James Porteous has been collecting stories for as long as he can remember.
Perhaps collecting is the wrong word. People have always loved sharing their stories and he has always enjoyed listening. And taking notes.
So think of this collection as an anti-memoir memoir, a fictional version of Studs Terkel's Working.
Some of the stories are his, some are culled from chats with people along the way and others are complete fiction.
This might not be 'all of him,' but it is pretty close.
