Multi-award-winning author Sol Luckman receives yet another major recognition, this time for Humor in the 15th Annual 2018 Best Book Awards.
The Best Book Awards, sponsored by the American Book Fest, selected Sol Luckman’s irreverently hilarious book of satire for the awake and awakening crowd, THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY: A SPIRITED GLOSSARY FOR THE LITTLE DEVIL IN YOU, as an award-winning Finalist in the Humor category in this year’s contest.
Jeffrey Keen, President and CEO of American Book Fest, commented that this year’s contest attracted “a phenomenal mix of books from a wide array” of independent as well as mainstream publishers.
St. Martin’s Press, Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster, Hay House, Palgrave Macmillan and New American Library are just some of the hundreds of publishers that entered books in this year’s competition.
Already established as the Winner in the Humor category of the prestigious 11th Annual 2017 National Indie Excellence Awards and a Finalist for Humor in the 2018 International Book Awards, THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY is a comical lexicon for coming to terms with modern culture (or lack thereof), politics (so-called), and life (such as it is).
In its five-star review of this knee-slapping “tour de farce,” Readers’ Favorite had this high praise: “Irreverent in its honesty and take-no-prisoners approach, THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY: A SPIRITED GLOSSARY FOR THE LITTLE DEVIL IN YOU is an honest appraisal of words in terms of today’s sensibilities. Sol Luckman has picked up where writers like Mark Twain and Ambrose Bierce left off over a century ago, identifying new associations for words and phrases to match what they really represent today […] They say many a true word is spoken in jest, and perhaps Luckman’s humor is a well-timed wake-up call to be heeded while we still have time to ask important questions.”Taking a page from Ambrose Bierce’s satirical masterpiece, THE DEVIL’S DICTIONARY, THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY reinvigorates satire to prove that—though we might not be able to change the world—we can at least have a good laugh at it. Then again, maybe laughter can transform the world!
Previously, Sol Luckman’s critically acclaimed spiritual adventure novel, SNOOZE: A STORY OF AWAKENING, won the 9th Annual 2015 National Indie Excellence Award for New Age Fiction. Luckman is also known for his bestselling nonfiction books, CONSCIOUS HEALING and POTENTIATE YOUR DNA, which explore the role of consciousness and DNA in personal healing and transformation.
