A series of stories
by 20th century composer John Cage
. They include jokes
, and random thoughts
. If you read or hear enough of them they being to resemble Zen koans
and are often quite jarring non sequitur
s. They are scattered over several books
. He would often deliver them as lectures
or accompanied by music
. He varied the speed in which he read them so each story, no matter how long or short the text
, would be one minute
long, and the strange text format of some of them often reflects the pacing.
