Dick's life has been “interesting”, to say the least. He was born in a tepee, his father is an activist who pops in and out of his life at odd times. And his girlfriend Amanda (well, ONE of the Amandas) wants to kill him.
This is a fun satire. Nothing too deep, but entertaining. I did think it could be a little shorter; it did start to drag a bit toward the end.
I notice some other reviewers didn’t care for the book, but I found it entertaining. Any book that makes me chuckle can’t be all bad.
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.

Tri-Y, a character (added to one of the Amandas- the nixon) that add to the uneasiness about the whole story.
The story managed to keep its coherence in time/space/facts which is good in itself...
