"Hundreds of wise meditations on all sorts of subjects, including love, death, literature and sex. Aphorisms, being normally only two or three lines long, are in their form perfect for our times. In Paterson's hands, they become supremely wise and moving as well." --Alain de Botton, Scotland on Sunday
"Clever, addictive and funny." --Nick Hornby, The Guardian
