"An aphorism never coincides with the truth: it is either a half-truth or one-and-a-half truths," wrote Kraus. The aphorism was "a sub-genre [Kraus] considered the height of linguistic integrity. . . . With the help of notes and introductions by Zohn, the subtlety and archness of Kraus' linguistic gifts shine through."—Peter Filkins, Bloomsbury Review

"Kraus is a superb aphorist."—D. J. Enright, New York Review of Books
Contents
Karl Kraus: An Introduction
With my narrow horizon
Riddles out of solutions
In hollow heads
In this war we are dealing . . .
Not for women but against men
Lord, forgive them . . .
