Greguerias

Daniel Liebert

Dan Liebert writes, “As far as I know, I’m the only modern writer of ‘greguerias’ in the manner of Ramon Gomez de la Serna. I love this form and though it’s not an aphorism and it’s not a poem and it’s not really a fragment, they accumulate (fragment-like) as entries in my notebooks.”
