Half-Truths & One-&-A-Half Truths: Selected Aphorisms


An aphorism never coincides with the truth: it is either a half-truth or one-and-a-half truths, wrote Kraus. The aphorism was a sub-genre [Kraus] considered the height of linguistic integrity. . . . With the help of notes and introductions by Zohn, the subtlety and archness of Kraus' linguistic gifts shine through.--Peter Filkins, Bloomsbury Review Kraus is a superb aphorist.--D. J. Enright, New York Review of Books
