Æsop's Fables - Here and Now brings common sense and humor to the 21st Century. The author deftly weaves into his stories and commentary an exploration of the Facts of Life – meaning truth is universal and applies to everyone at all times; … what did you think it meant? …. Well, sure, that too. Æsop's original stories chose cute and perceptive animals to represent and inspire people in cute and perceptive stories. In like manner, our author, Æverett Anderson, blends humor, personal reflections and interpersonal observations from his multifarious years to convey his message in an entertaining, homespun, breezy manner.
A book for all ages. The catalyst for the book was the author's desire to pass on, without rejection, the wisdom of the ages to his grandchildren, but the finished manuscript has found heartfelt (amen!) appeal to readers of all ages. The stories from the past and present and their inevitable conclusion have hit a responsive chord across generations; how could it not with Aesop as its guru. For teenagers, the book is a script for successful living. For parents, it is a welcome lesson plan and guide in their child's development. And for grand folks, it is a nostalgic journey and the answer to the eternal question, “What memorable, life impacting present can I give my favorite school child on their graduation?”
Fundamental themes in life remain the same. Æverett draws apt stories from real life, fiction, and assorted philosophers, here and then, to pass on basic truths. Each chapter focuses on a different area of interest, from coronavirus and health concerns, to sex, love, God, death, horses, and more – topics that occupy so much of our daily effort. Æsop's Fables – Here and Now is an entertaining, thought provoking, reminiscent read.
