Book Synopsis
“MurMurings” are illustrated jokes, one-liners, and non-sequiturs reflective of my quirky views and observations of the world around me. My first draft included sequiturs, but they were later deleted and used to keep my dining room table level.

But wait – there’s more! The “MurMurings” book is sub-titled “Funny Tales of Terror and Other Desperate Cries for Help.” The nine “Funny Tales of Terror”, which appear after every few pages of “MurMurings”, are hilarious (and true) short stories about frightening or tense events from my life.

MurMurings is meant for people of all ages. Except newborns. They can teethe on a stale bagel.

The Funny Tales of Terror include:
My First Car Accident
My Kingdom for a Rest Stop
The First Time I Had Sex (the quickest read)
The Time I Almost Got Robbed
The Time I Got Crushed By A Giant
The Time I Nearly Got Struck By Lightning
The Time I Really Got Robbed
When A Dog Bit Me During the 1968 Riots
Bomb Scary

I stayed up well past my grown-up bedtime to read this first book, MurMurings, by Murray Siegal, and have to say that I am glad I did. It was really such a treat! Reading In my mind, MurMurings played out to be a little trip through another person's story, that drama known as life itself, with a just-perfect collection of perspective-revealing moments, memories, quandaries, sweet sarcasm, and straight-up jokes. (some good pictures too!) The author's ability to share experiences and thoughts, some scary, with his wit and a good sense of humor, makes him one cool cat of a thinker and storyteller which is a gift to readers, at least it was for me. I know that I will revisit this book again. There are some lines that I really enjoyed, some minimalistic, the added touch that makes a story that much better to perfect. I will resist doing that because I don't want to have to write "spoiler alert" at the top of my comments. I have no doubt that readers will appreciate this book as much as I did for probably a whole other list of reasons. Simply put, Loved It!!

A raucous romp through the mind of one deranged man. There are plenty of dry gems in there to keep you glued to the pages until you reach the end. After that, you'll probaby go back to it over and over, just to randomly flip through the pages for a quick guffaw. I recommend "Murmurings" to anyone hankering for mind-escaping nonsense and silly ingenuity.

I highly recommend "MurMurings: 'Funny Tales of Terror' and other desperate cries for help." I needed this! In fact, everyone needs this book. Many believe that laughter is the best medicine, and I must admit that it's my drug of choice. If it's yours, too, read MurMurings. The author, Murray Siegel, said in a recent interview that there's never a bad time for laughs. I couldn't agree more, and now more than ever, the world needs to laugh. Murray has a gift for both subtle and in your face humor, and his book delivers. I'd suggest purchasing a few copies -- you no doubt have a friend or two who could use a laugh, too!

MurMurings by Murray Siegel was a fun to read. I loved the sarcastic humor. I think the longer essays were my favorite. Mr. Siegel displays a wit that shows you don’t have to be dirty to get a laugh, maybe just slightly naughty. I can’t compare it to anything else I have read, I can’t think of a humor book that I enjoyed more. I urge you to buy this book so he can give us more. This book is small but packs a comedic punch. I would describe it as the coffee table book of the tiny house movement!

This is a genuinely fun read! Murmurings is easy to pick up, brings lots of big smiles, and recharges your mind. It’s kind of like getting the effects of a 3 PM Snickers bar… but without all the calories!!

“MurMurings” is an entertaining collection of the observations, reflections, and memories of Murray Siegel, who is masterful at depicting the humor of everyday life. Siegel offers witty accounts of the mishaps in his past interspersed with clever one-liners, musings, and illustrations (or what the author calls, “short, stupid stuff”). This is a unique and memorable book. If you need a laugh or an escape from your own misadventures, treat yourself to “MurMurings!”

“Do you think Rembrandt’s wife ever had trouble getting him to paint the guest bedroom?”

What a fun read! Murray Siegel’s MurMurings has a chuckle on every page and a couple of knee slappers too. This is a humorous and clever collection of stories, recollections and quips that looks at the absurdity and irony in everyday life. And all from Murray’s unique perspective. Enjoyable from cover to cover and highly recommended for anyone who has ever smiled.
