Local Author Uses Humor To Delight Readers

Albuquerque native Clyde James Aragón’s passion is humor, and he’s used his wit to write everything from greeting cards to plays and even to craft crossword puzzles.

Inspired by the likes of Mark Twain, Richard Amory and Ambrose Bierce, Aragón has turned his pen to the lighter side of stories.

“It just seemed to come to me for some reason,” he said in a recent interview. “I always loved joke books.”

The almost 70-year-old retiree describes his work as general humor. “I want to entertain people. I don’t want to put in too much politics or preach at them. I want to get them to laugh.”

Aragón recently self-published “Spanish for Dogs,” a small volume that cheerfully explains that dogs worldwide prefer Spanish 20-1 over English. In it, Aragon offers several commands and other suggestions to help avert human-canine misunderstandings.
