MY LIFE WITH WORDS

by Hugh Aaron

My Life with Words is a collection of essays, short stories, classic movie reviews, and poems. On approaching his ninth decade Aaron has compiled this volume of such disparate writings because he believes these short pieces deserve to be shared. Will his writings be of interest to current and future generations? Hopefully yes, because they provide a view into what was happening on this planet and why over the course of a long lifetime. As the sages suggest, to understand the present one needs to know the past.
Reader comments: "It has been a wonderful ride reading it all." "Hugh Aaron's book is truly a modern odyssey of both a man and his time." "Reading My Life With Words is like sitting down with fine conversation and a good cup of coffee." "It is a trip of ideas and wisdom that come with age and experience. It is almost as good as the real thing." 269 pages. $19.95
