To fans of sassy and savvy urban music, the name Rick James will forever be associated with the mainstream emergence of funk—that bottom-heavy blend of rock and soul that sparked a multiracial musical revolution in the 1970s and 1980s and has since influenced everything from rap to raves, punk to progressive rock. Along with the fame, the Grammy Award, and superstardom came drug abuse and even felony convictions, all of which are chronicled in this gripping, posthumous tell-all of the funk revolution.

This book probably won't make Oprah's Book Club and may not be published, but my psychiatrist said I better write it for both my sake and for the sake of others. The characters and events in this chronicle are real. You know that old saying "The truth is stranger than fiction." Well, it applies here. Some of you are going to think this book is bullshit based on the premise that no one could have gone through these events and remained sane enough to record it. But that's okay; I'll take a lie detector test to confirm each and every incident. That is, as long as it's not in my hometown, because I don't trust the powers that be downtown. You'll learn why. There will be a lot of swearing, but I won't take the Lord's name in vain. I'm a believer in the Lord. I can motherfuck you with the best of them but won't use His name in vain. It's kind of a dichotomy. I guess I'm a cross between Holden Caulfield in The Catcher in the Rye, Randall P McMurphy in One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, Luke in Cool Hand Luke, Max Cady in Cape Fear, and Andy Durfresne in The Shawshank Redemption.

"Luqman's commitment to his dreams and ideals are intense and boldly honest. His focus is on his search and discovery of universal truth. Here, he offers a glimpse into the reality that all answers come from within; and each man (person) must connect to his or her own spirit in honesty and with an open mind in order to hear them. Hollywood is a fantasy that, if we allow it, can distract from the great creative medium that is within all of us to build for ourselves. In the footsteps of Luqman, (moving in his own footsteps, as with each of us) lies even greater hope and truth." Marla Gibbs Actress, Community Activist, and friend to generations as Florence on The Jeffersons, Mary on 227, and D. L. Hughley's mother on The Hughley's.

Confessions of a Sensitive Soul: A Poetic Journey is a revealing, insightful, and passionate look into the mind of a voracious poet. These poems evoke a spectrum of images and genuine emotion while exploring the intricacies and nuances of contemporary life, love, relationships, self and spiritual growth. "There is a new poet on the scene! Proof that God is alive and well and continuing to inspire our creative juices. Nyja's poetry was written to reflect her journey, challenges and triumphs; but upon closer examination we find our own reflection. It is simple truth offering us introspection into our own lives by making us giggle, think, laugh out loud, sigh, cry, and applaud the memories. I think we can expect more from this gifted voice. Bravo Nyja! My daughter from God." -Marla Gibbs, Actress

The study of any masterpiece can change one's life, but the Confessions of St. Augustine, like Plato's Republic or Dante's Commedia, has the almost uncanny power to enact in the reader what it describes. Plato's book reconfigures the city of the soul by freeing it from enslavement to the tyrannical passions and making it answerable to reason in its pursuit of the good. For Augustine, who shares many of the same ends, the pursuit of the good is not the rectification of philosophical reason, but (as it was for Dante) an intensely personal and consuming love: the encounter with the living God. Oddly, it may seem, that encounter comes for Augustine through the act of reading. Unlike Plato, who depicts the process of reasoning toward the truth, Augustine finds the truth revealed in another, immeasurably greater book that cannot be read in its true sense without the help of its author. The essays uncover a variety of themes, from Augustine's act of reading (Marc LePain and Bercier), his emphasis on memory (Roger Corriveau), and his choice to reveal to the world his "hidden and unworldly activity" (Daniel Maher), to the way Augustine's own education might serve as a corrective to contemporary understandings of "assessment" (Gavin Colvert). The vast wake of Augustine's work includes writers from Dante and Montaigne to Nabokov, but three representative figures were chosen to show his influence: Jean-Jacques Rousseau in the Confessions (Rick Sorenson), James Joyce in the whole range of his work (Eloise Knowlton), and T.S. Eliot in the Four Quartets (Glenn Arbery). The most direct engagement with Augustine is obviously Rousseau's. In his essay comparing and contrasting the pivotal moments of the two Confessions, Rick Sorenson explores major differences between the way of faith and the path of reliance on reason. Joyce might be said to have taken Rousseau's path (at least in rejecting revelation), whereas Eliot took Augustine's. In its sophistications and anxieties, the late antiquity Augustine inhabited feels a great deal like the late modernity we inhabit now. Certainly, the barbarians of materialist thought long ago sacked the civilization our ancestors inhabited. When Eliot published The Waste Land in 1922, he already saw the old order of antiquity and Christendom as "stony rubble," "a heap of broken images." As one of his speakers puts it, "Dry bones can harm no one." This old book, the Confessions, might seem to our contemporaries as dry and dead as those bones, but it is not so. Without being a defense of Christianity (as the City of God is) or a work of catechesis, the Confessions might be the greatest counter to the materialist creed in Western literature. It recounts Augustine's central, intensely personal, and ultimately liberating struggle to conceive of spiritual substance, an intellectual achievement without which he cannot even hope to accommodate his understanding to the reality of God. This book of essays has one primary end, which is to entice the reader to reopen Augustine's book, to look over his shoulder and see what the act of reading means to him and what it has accomplished: the world-changing encounter with the substance of the Word.
