Luke Sterne

‘”Who you getten, bratty? What biggy, what only?” These young devotchkas had their own like way of govoreeting. “The Heaven Seventeen? Luke Sterne? Goggly Gogol?” And both giggled, rocking and hippy.’ (A Clockwork Orange, p37 of the Penguin edition)

Steve King writes that Laurence Sterne’s sermon on the Sunday after his marriage in 1741 was a discourse upon Luke 5:5 — “We have toiled all night, and have taken nothing.”
