Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

Here is a little book in the grand tradition of aphorism - subversive, biting, cheerful. The classic topics come alive again on these crisp pages: pride, happiness, divinity, death, love, friendship, art, politics. Honed to a razor edge, each short thought slices through convention, as the author invites the reader to ponder the folly of the human race -perhaps its most attractive characteristic.
