Luke Soloman

A Quote by Sol Luckman on identity, luke soloman, beginners luke, free novel, awakening, birth, rebirth, and photography

I wasn’t sure what was going on or what time it was or where I was or even, for that matter, who I was … but my gut told me something was terribly wrong. I opened my eyes slowly, as sensitive to light as a roll of film: just expose me and I’d vanish.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on stoning, flight, fugitive, conflict, absurd, farce, spoof, mel gibson, braveheart, persecution, mayan, tattoo, and luke soloman

Groping inside my duffel, I found my Swiss army knife and opened one of the blades. I stopped and turned brandishing it, an insane glint in my eye like Mel Gibson in Braveheart. My nearest persecutor, a young man covered in Mayan tattoos, was approaching fast. The knife made him hesitate—but that was all.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on luke soloman, crisis, deep doodoo, clarity, difficulty, challenge, test, and initiation

My throat was parched and my entire body was leprous with cuts, yet my mind was exceedingly clear. I knew I was in deep s**t. I didn’t know how deep--just that I still hadn’t touched bottom.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on halloween, imagination, imaginary, imaginal, consciousness, experience, biography, metaphor, mask, persona, reality, spy, fiction, fictitious, luke soloman, reality creation, and manifestation

It would be Halloween. It’s always Halloween in my imaginary life. Even in my earliest years, the ones I never technically experienced but only heard about from my biographers, it was Halloween—Halloween a metaphor for donning a mask of “reality” and becoming a spy in order to expose the “real” world’s fictitious underbelly.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on pacifism, freedom, free will, free thought, free love, free ride, freebie, vegetarian, fruitarian, breatharian, eternal life, salvation, vegan, nature, earth, mother earth, harmony, commune, community, hippy, cult, dead head, gr

The Folarians (such was their name) were a pacifistic people who believed in free will, free thought, free love, free land, free living, free rides, freeloading and freebies of all kinds. Bitter enemies of the Vegetarians, the Fruitarians (who lived exclusively on raw fruit), the Pietarians (or “New Fruitarians,” as they were sometimes called, who ate only raw fruit pies) and the Breatharians (who subsisted on air alone), the Folarians promoted a doctrine wherein eternal life was achieved by abstaining from all food sources save foliage—thus their name. Moreover, this foliage—whether leaves, stems or flowers—must already have fallen to the ground of its own accord. This way, eating only nature’s leftovers, the Folarians lived in perfect harmony with Mother Earth.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on talking, conversation, salesman, death, death rattle, laughter, reminiscing, memory, nostalgia, character, luke soloman, identity, discovery, and reinvention

We shook hands. Norm’s hand felt like salted mackerel. Our brief interaction had put him in a talkative mood. “There’s no business like shoe business,” he uttered with a death rattle laugh, heh heh, peering at me sideways like a depraved cherub as he droned on and on about the good old days in the shoe business, the bonus money and the belles whose stockinged ankles he fondled when he could still get a boner … but my mind was elsewhere. I couldn’t stop thinking about Luke Soloman, Luke Soloman, Luke Soloman. Who was this character?

A Quote by Sol Luckman on genius, perversity, decadence, suburb, new age, polarity, satire, parody, comedy, spoof, humor, and luke soloman

It didn’t take a genius to figure out I’d come to Perver City. Technically a suburb of New Age City, Perver City is where all the people who can’t make it in New Age City wind up.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on job, employment, instinct, corporate, slavery, nausea, shopping, life, life is short, society, imagination, imaginal, fantasy, money, luke soloman, vagabond, homeless, comedy, and humor

My first instinct was to get a job—an idea immediately followed by a crippling wave of nausea. I literally vomited in a trashcan on the sidewalk where I’d been pleasantly window-shopping. I found the idea of a job repulsive. Life was too short to waste being a productive member of society. My job was my imaginary life, and I felt deeply I should be paid to live it.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on verisimilitude, limitation, experimental, self-publishing, mainstream, rubicon, ficion, novel, luke soloman, multidimensionality, and beginners luke

Years from now when verisimilitude is finally understood as a terribly limiting proposition, let our daringly experimental books (often self-published, often ignored by the mainstream) be remembered as the Rubicon fiction crossed on its journey into multidimensionality.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on beginners luke, sol luckman, luke soloman, fiction, nonfiction, author, character, personage, disclaimer, reality, fantasy, truth, imagination, writing, and novel

DISCLAIMER: This is a work of fiction insofar as we are all, each and every one of us, including yours truly, and including you (perhaps most of all), works of fiction. Beyond that, it is pure and absolute nonfiction; and though its “author” technically never existed, at least not in the dense, empirical, flesh-and-blood sense, the personages and events herein depicted are drawn straight from life, as it were. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual places, living or dead, while purely coincidental from the point of view of intention, should surprise no one.
