"Editors Lough and Stein prove that good things come in small packages with this collection of modern aphorisms-short but sweet nuggets of wisdom, humor, insight, and clever turn of phrase... something for everyone in this proverbial box of chocolates." PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
"Aphorism is thought going naked... It aims for transparency, and when it achieves that, as it does on every page of this wonderful collection, the result is arousing... surprise mingled with illumination... writing instructors will find the book especiall" JOSEPH HUTCHISON Colorado Poet Laureate
"And you thought an aphorism was just an aphorism? This thoroughly lively volume of contemporary aphorists (a no longer secret society) suggests otherwise." DAVID LAZAR founding editor of "Hotel Amerika" and author, The Body of Brooklyn and Occasional Desire
