In Pianist in a Bordello, author Mike C. Erickson explores this premise in a rollicking adventure featuring Richard Milhous Nixon Youngblood, a man who was born in a commune to a hippie mother and an absentee father who was also an enigmatic revolutionary. After his tumultuous childhood, including being kicked out of college for a political prank, Youngblood decides to enter politics. Unlike his fellow politicians, though, he decides to publish a ‘tell-all’ autobiography prior to the election. His campaign advisors are against it, and his mission is complicated by all the Amandas in his life, including a peripatetic journalist who gets herself kidnapped by terrorists, and a determined stalker who considers herself and Youngblood to be reincarnations of the real Pat and Tricky Dick Nixon, who are destined to be linked together in death.
Fictional, it offers a unique take on real-life historical and political events of our time that will make a reader pause and reflect. Sometimes, fiction is closer to the truth than most of us are comfortable admitting. After reading this book, some of the more bizarre events of current-day politics will actually make more sense.
I received a free copy of this book.
I really enjoyed the debut novel of Mike C. Erickson, particularly the poignant quotes that punctuated each chapter. While I identified with desire of the unfortunately monikered Dickie, I have to say I remain a skeptic on the central theme of his faith in the general public’s appreciation of the truth. Still it’s a great political novel and I hope that Mr. Erickson continues Dickie’s story while he actually navigates the not really all that truthful halls of Congress.
Having grown up with the Vietnam Nam war, the anti war protests of that era, and raising my children in the years that followed, it was fun to relive that very special time with a fresh eye. This is a book that you will not give up on; it is simply too much fun and a real delight. I can't wait to see the next book from this very fine writer!
Well done, sir, well done!
