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!!
