Mike C. Ericksonabout this book: Pianist in a Bordello has been described as a "hilarious political romp through the last four decades of American history from a narrator who is full of surprises". From his birth in a hippy commune when he was named after Richard Nixon to his gradual seduction into the world of politics, the book is full of laughs that also makes the reader think.
As Dickie, the narrator matures he, like the author, seems intent on putting a unique stamp on the future of society. In this quest, he becomes more and more attracted to the idea of honesty. My challenge as the author was to make sure he did not seem excessively naïve or to lose his sense of humor. This work of fiction ends after a mid-term election in 2010. In someways, the ideas presented are even more relevant after the 2016 election and asks the question: Are the voters ready for the truth? Or to quote Jack Nicolson, "can you really handle the truth?"
