James Geary is an American-born, London-based writer and the former Europe editor of Time
His most recent book is Geary’s Guide to the World's Great Aphorists which he claims to be the largest collection of aphorisms in the English language, and follows on from his previous volume on aphorists and aphorisms, The World in a Phrase (published in the UK - but now out of print - as We Are What We Think). The World in a Phrase has also been published in Brazilian Portuguese - as O Mundo em una Frase - as well as Korean.
Geary publishes a blog about aphorisms, All Aphorisms, All The Time, via his website. He is also a regular speaker at literary festivals where he gives a largely unscripted lecture on aphorisms which includes his juggling routine.
Among his journalistic credits, apart from his work at Time, Geary is Editor at Large for Ode magazine and writes online for The Huffington Post, Salon.com and the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc's Newsletter.
