Abstract: Ten years after "More Please", prompted perhaps by his recent, belated triumphs in the USA, Humphries has dug deeper, irresistibly, into his cornucopian memory. Some readers may be perplexed by his traversal of the same material and by his reversion to the bassinet. In one slightly crabby interview, Humphries explained: 'I remembered all the bits I left out.' Yet the first of his many epigraphs comes from Gertrude Stein: 'I do not know whether to put in the things I do not remember as well as the things I do remember.'
