Book recommendation: 'Hesitation Marks' by Thomas Farber

Heads up for another book by Thomas Farber entitled Hesitation Marks. Olivia Dresher, editor of IN PIECES: AN ANTHOLOGY OF FRAGMENTARY WRITING comments: "Every epigram in HESITATION MARKS is a surprise, a little jolt, a stab of wit. Farber exposes truths behind human behavior by playing with language, daringly juggling such themes as aging, hypocrisy, betrayal, envy. These epigrams offer little comfort, except in their originality and skillful compression they almost transcend themselves." Leonard Pitt, author of Walks Through Lost Paris says: "Thomas Farber has a weird and wonderful mind. He sees everything we see but more. Because he sees more and is so good at saying less, his epigrams translate human experience into playful gems of meaning. The art of the epigram is not only alive and well but thrives under Farber's thoughtful observations."

Thomas is the author of among other books, the two wonderfully reflective volumes on surfing and water entitled Face of the Deep and On Water.
