Now remember don't throw away, what metaphors have to say
Brooklyn, NY (Vocus) November 16, 2010
“Now remember don’t throw away, what metaphors have to say,” says Pitens as he invites readers on a journey through metaphors and its parallelisms in life. Author Brian Luckett stimulates readers’ minds as he takes them through Pitens Alley.
In the prevailing wind, a street sign rattles. As Mr. Hommes reaches the pole, he sees it rattling and vibrating in a veil of a blur, a blur of a name. Then in a moment of calm, he could see the sign is labeled, “Pitens Alley”. Not far from the curb beyond the concrete sidewalk is an entrance to an unusually strange and beautiful alley, looking quite off the beating path. Not far from the entrance, he sees quite a common sight, a garbage can and upon it lying down, a cat. Not an entirely uncommon thing to see, but things take a turn for the stranger when the cat smiles and then speaks aloud.
As readers take a trip down Pitens Alley, they embark on a metaphorical journey of twists and turns through the many metaphors that tell this fascinating tale filled with an assortment of intriguing characters. Entertaining from beginning to end, readers will find themselves immersed in the symbolism of Pitens Alley, and the crossroads it represents.
