One Kind of Recording: Aphorisms

One Kind of Recording, Aphorisms

by Laurence Musgrove

Musgrove wrote this about his little book of aphorisms:

Aphorists whittle sentences to a point.

When a novel is thick with character, plot and scene, the reader may be drawn quickly through the pages to keep up with the journey.

When a thin volume, like this one, includes more open space than words, there is no need to hurry.

This collection contains more than 200 aphorisms I have composed and lingered over the last 8 years or so.

I was in no hurry either.

Order from any bookstore, local or online.
