Words for the Road
The Author George Manus has, in several of his books put in Proverbs written by himself.
In advance of publishing this collection of 114 of them, he had no thoughts about them representing a mixture of Poetry, Folded hands, Aphorisms and Proverbs. In other words not only Proverbs.
This book therefore, which presents them in both English and Norwegian, he named WORDS FOR THE ROAD, as his earlier ones have been published in both languages.
George Manus was born in England 14.05.39. His mother was Ida Nikoline Lindebrække from Norway and his English father George Bernardes. His parents divorced and George grew up, after the Second World War, as the stepson of war hero Max Manus in Norway. He got the name Manus but was never adopted.
All his professional life he was engaged in the Max Manus companies and leader of same for about 40 years. Throughout his adult life, he has thought about EVERYTHING, making notes along the way, as a basis for the books he knew he would write upon retirement.
George Manus has fulfilled his dreams and as of today has written several books. In his authorship one can sense the cosmopolitan, which isn't random. He has experienced a lot, lived abroad and for the last fifteen years been firmly ensconced in the South of Spain.
George Manus ble født i England 14.05.39. Hans mor var Ida Nikoline Lindebrække fra Norge og hans engelske far George Bernardes. Foreldrene ble skilt og George vokste, etter annen verdenskrig, opp som stesønn av krigshelten Max Manus i Norge. Han fikk navnet Manus, men ble aldri adoptert.
I hele sitt yrkesaktive liv var han engasjert i Max Manus firmaene, og i nærmere 40 år leder av disse. Han har gjennom hele sitt voksne liv fundert over ALT og gjort seg notater underveis, som en studie for de bøker som han visste at han på sitt otium ville gi seg i kast med.
George Manus har innfridd sine drømmer, og har til dags dato skrevet flere bøker. I hans forfatterskap kan man merke at det er en kosmopolitt som skriver, noe som ikke er tilfeldig. Han har opplevd mye, bodd i utlandet og de siste femten år vært fast forankret i Syd Spania.
