Luke B. Goebelis the guest. His new novel, Fourteen Stories, None of Them Are Yours, is now available from Fiction Collective Two.
Kirkus Reviews says
If Kerouac were writing today, his work might look something like this—and despite the title, many of the stories are indeed ours, as they focus on love and loss, pain and yearning.… This is a fierce, untamed, riotous book—and from the first page you’ll know you’re not reading Jane Austen.
And Lidia Yuknavitch says
I’m in love with language again because Luke B. Goebel is not afraid to take us back through the gullet of loss into the chaos of words. Someone burns a manuscript in Texas; someone’s speed sets a life on fire; a heart is beaten nearly to death, the road itself is the trip, a man is decreated back to his animal past–better, beyond ego, beautiful, and look: there’s an American dreamscape left. There’s a reason to go on.
Monologue topics: holidays, Santa Claus, lying, shattering my daughter’s dream.
