"What would happen if a politician decided to tell the truth—the whole truth? Richard Youngblood, aspiring Congressman, is about to find out. He’s running on a platform of honesty and transparency—and against the advice of his friends and advisers he’s decided to start with himself. His autobiography will lay his entire life bare before voters just days before the election."

Pianist in a Bordello is a fun and realistic find!

When I first heard about this book, I thought that it would be a typical political humor and satire book; a dry and boring piece in which the author would cram his political views down readers’ throats.

Boy was I wrong!

Pianist in a Bordello reads like a fun, historical narrative that chronicles the life of a fictitious main character as he evolves from being a prankster and social activist into a politician. While the protagonist’s adventures are fictitious, the historical facts that the book is filled with are quite accurate. It is easy to forget that the book is fiction as the author unerringly guides his readers through the past 40 years’ of politics in the United States with memorable quotes from historical figures, and the lighthearted mayhem that the protagonist seems to find himself in the middle of.

This is a great read for those of us that lived through the past 40 years of U.S. history, and would be a wonderful introduction to civics for high school students.

Pianist in a Bordello by Mike C. Erickson is available at the Kindle Store for $1.99. A copy of the paperback will cost you anywhere between $4.94 - $10.28 on Amazon, or at B&N for $10.39.
