"Glimpse: Selected Aphorisms, George Murray: shld appeal to T-folks: short! sharp! salty & sweet!" Margaret Atwood, Twitter.com
"An engaging little package of 409 aphorisms. . . . Murray may have come up with the ideal poetic form for the age of Twitter. It’s easy to breeze through its bite-sized witticisms in a sitting. And yet, what’s perhaps a bit surprising is that the book continues to yield enjoyment, and a sense of discovery, on rereading." Toronto Star
"Every aphorism calls out to us, like the last line from some beautiful, but imaginary, poem." Christian Bök, poet, Eunoia
"[W]hile it only takes an hour-or-so to devour this book, the benefits . . . are certain to remain with readers long after the text is completed.” Scene Magazine
"Where are we? Where Wilde and Socrates and Thoreau and Groucho Marx, toddlers all, sit together on the floor and mix toes and fingers. High-rise axioms. Murray is as philosophically as he is humorously exact: what more can one ask of a glimpse’? Paul Durcan, poet, Daddy, Daddy
"Murray is one of the few poets publishing aphorisms in English today, and Glimpse proves he is also one of the best. . . . we get a glimpse into the soul of a maneloquent, wry, contradictory, profound." Quill & Quire
