Carl Beckman, Author of Discourse for the Literati

Purchase from Amazon:

A fit of pique lead to the creation of the Discourse, an electronic publication of articles containing the sometimes satirical, sometimes esoteric, and often humorous writings of the man known as Graybeard after he fell prey to a kangaroo court and was dismissed as editor of his community newsletter.

In Discourse for the Literati, Carl Beckman, who uses the pen name Graybeard, shares selections from his reborn publication, which includes commentaries, a bit of humor, satirical missives on travel, the intrusion of technology in our lives, and nostalgia, and other pithy comments, reflections, and bon mots. From a funny history of America and a satire about computers to commentaries on getting old and witticisms about food, travel, and the modern world, there’s a little of something for everyone.

Now in his seventh decade of life, Graybeard opens the Discourse to anyone interested in the idiosyncratic musings of a man reincarnated to write whatever he wanted to write and to publish–no censorship and no deadlines, just a writer and something to say.

One thought on “Authors of Summit Greens”

  1. Carl Beckman has written a marvelous book, Discourse for the Literati, The Wit & Wisdom of Graybeard. Once you start reading it, you’ll have trouble putting it down. He begins by describing life today as he sees it with light hearted humor, satire, and commentary much in the style of past humorist Robert Benchley. His tongue-in-cheek historical philosophy will keep you amused as he jumps through the ages from one part of history to another. Other parts of the book include a semi-autobiography of his multi-faceted life and a review of his world travel experiences. He expresses his feelings on life today as we all are experiencing it. The reader will get the feeling that he not only enjoys life but feels deeply on many subjects. This is a fun, easy to read book that will keep you glued throughout.
