The National Post ran a full page in their arts section this weekend on Glimpse and me. There was a brief profile and interview, a nice big picture and a set of exerpts from the book. Very nice! Thanks, National Post.
Each day, thousands of people visit Bookninja to read George Murray’s razor-sharp musings on the publishing world. It is as a poet, however, that he first made his name. The author of four previous books, Murray recently published Glimpse, a collection of 409 aphorisms. Described as “a crystallized poetic essence,” aphorisms, though short, can be as deep as the ocean. To wit: “The only reliable form of time travel is living.” The book even has its own iPhone application, for those who like their philosophy on the go. Mark Medley recently spoke to Murray from his home in St. John’s. Herewith, their conversation, condensed and edited.
