Through some unknown mechanism, FRANK LINDNER and a notorious criminal named THORPE, a.k.a. LIGHTNING, find themselves trapped in a soap bubble–quite the mystery there. The former shows not apprehension, but hate towards his fellow captive as the ‘sphere’ rises into the sky and is gently being carried away by the winds.
Thorpe appears more concerned with Frank’s auto-destructive behavior than with his own fate. He tries to defuse the hate that Frank has for him by showing off the mysterious power that has helped him elude the law all of his life. From a series of stopovers over bleak, out-of-the-world territories, Frank is encouraged to follow the ideals that speak of courage, discipline, and generosity, and whether that means resisting the invitation to lust, struggling through shark-infested waters, or saving the life of a vulture hungering for human flesh, he succeeds each and every single time. In doing so, he begins to have his way with the sphere, to materialize things into the sphere even, with the mere power of his mind, though when he decides to acquire too much—paradise itself—the sphere bursts.
What happens then is an invitation to explore Frank’s childhood, for one must begin to question whether Thorpe is even real at all, or… is he simply a fruit of the child’s imagination?
Targeted Age Group:
I’m not a contemporary, I suppose. Aside from that, writing is always different in the writer’s own mind. All I can say in this case is that I’m in no shape or form an excessively proud man.
If my writing is different, it probably is because there is a willingness on my part to be different. That’s one of the better ways to go as far as the game of seduction is concerned.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Be cool and don’t assume like I often did that the writing was any good.
Marvin was born in France, moved to the United States as a young boy, and is now back to where he started. He is a perfect individual. His only vice is women. He oftentimes takes strolls in the cemetery to find tranquility and the necessary breaks for his myopic eyes. He enjoys touching the bark of trees and talking to himself. He is apologetic much like his characters and is devoid of heft. He also makes music, but that is all he is good for.
What inspired me to write this book was the idea of writing a book! It was all improvising from the get-go. I like islands, so I wrote about islands. I like flying, so I wrote about flying. For difficult passages, I had to find all the inspiration I could from my own life.
