Aphorisms are 5.000 years old but they never seemed as up-to-date as in the present context where social media have been increasingly shaping a taste for concision among writers and readers. Since 2013 Afobook has made a line of work in selecting and publishing aphorisms for the avid reader who believes that brevity should not necessarily compromise depth of content and hence looks for the sharp intellectual intensity only this ancient literary genre can offer.
Hernán Compá, the author of Rag Aphorisms, was born in Rosario, Argentina, and has been living in Barcelona since 2004 to date. For 15 years he combines his professional activity in the field of finance and real state with his passion for fiction. The result is numerous stories and a colection of aphorisms. With Rag Aphorisms, he proposes his vision of life in an entertaining and fresh way.
