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.
And what a life he’s had. Born in a commune and named Richard Milhous Nixon Youngblood as an angry shot at his absent father, Richard grows up in the spotlight, the son of an enigmatic fugitive and the grandson of a Republican senator. He’s kidnapped and rescued, kicked out of college for a prank involving turkeys, arrested in Hawaii while trying to deliver secrets to the CIA…Dick Nixon Youngblood’s ready to tell all.
He’ll even tell his readers about the Amandas—three women who share a name but not much else, and who each have helped shape and define the man he’s become.
Are voters really ready for the whole truth?
Pianist in a Bordello is a hilarious political romp through the last four decades of American history, from a narrator who is full of surprises.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I had a blast reading this fun romp about a young man and his adventures through a political lens. It is an easy read, full of wacky characters and hijinks. After I got into it, I could not put it down. Whether you are Conservative, Liberal or none of the above you will enjoy “Pianist in a Bordello”!
Charming, witty, wildly imaginative, well-written and colorful. Pianist in a Bordello is the “tell all” tale told by a teacher-turned politician who figures he may as well publish his life story before the media runs with it. A must read by anyone who is looking for a light-hearted yet provocative story, skillfully told, with an engaging collection of characters.
Great read! I love the notion of what would happen if polititians really “fessed up” and told the truth. The satire and wit, mixed with wisdom and knowledge of history and politics formed a successful recipe for a satisfying read!
Very Funny…laugh out loud funny! Some history, interesting politics, some wonderful teaching strategies that kids would love their teachers to use, and then there are the Amandas!! All in all, a most worthwhile read.
Reading this book is like taking a little vacation, only you’re going to times and trends in recent history instead of places, laughing along the way. I especially liked the quotations that begin each chapter. Satire of course, but also a fantasy that’s fun to read.

About The Author
Mike C. Erickson grew up in the idyllic college town of Logan, Utah, but because of a twist of fate he graduated from high school in Honolulu. He left Hawaii brimming with aloha and enrolled at Utah State, where he was awarded two degrees and self-proclaimed minor intellectual status, which was of dubious value when the US Army invited him to vacation in South-East Asia. Ten days after leaving Vietnam, he began decades of dispensing pearls of wisdom as a high school history teacher, academic decathlon coach, and on occasion, as a community college instructor in the Sacramento area. Mike and his wife Trudy, have two grown sons and a grandson born soon after this novel is published. When not in Hawaii or another exotic locale, they live in Gold River, California. This is his first novel.
As of April 26, 2015, my book is now the award wining novel, Pianist in a Bordello, having garnered a nod by the Northern California Publishers and Authors for third place in General Fiction.
Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Mike C. Erickson and ENT appreciate it.
