The aphorisms collected here are the result of many years of thinking and dreaming; the author himself confesses he is not always certain of their meaning, and they provide ample demonstration of how the same mind can contain multitudes and readily contradict itself, sometimes in the same sentence. But there is also a sense of serenity here, a wisdom hard-won and lightly applied with an almost Taoist playfulness. A short book, to be sure, but its phrases will resonate and be remembered, and the art of aphorism, dying on the vine since Nietzsche, bursts back into full fruit, suddenly seeming utterly contemporary (many of these would make excellent tweets). Yahia Lababidi is definitely a writer to watch.
