Early Praise for The Wizard and The White House

Here’s what’s being said about The Wizard and The White House:

“One weird, wild, original, imaginative, parodic book—funny, serious, and enlarged by its big and generous heart!”
—Sophie Burnham, author of A Book of Angels and The President’s Angel


“Relevant and timely, Mike Maggio’s The Wizard and the White House deftly satirizes contemporary politics and mores in the manner of Gogol or Swift. Smart and funny, witty and boisterous—this is the political novel the 21st Century desperately needs.”

—Nathan Leslie, author of Sibs and The Tall Tale of Tommy Twice


Here’s a collaboration that Richard Brautigan, Tom Robbins, and Hanuman the Monkey God might have written. Mike Maggio uses broad strokes, plus a clown cannon, in this absurd political farce. Wizardly magic wreaks havoc on the White House, and a diverse cast of characters, consistently chewed up and spit out by Amerika, band together to figure it out.”

—Richard Peabody, editor of Gargoyle Magazine


“A witty tale with lots of fun, absurd humor… People who enjoyed Good Omens [by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett] or the novels of Christopher Moore might get a kick out of this one.”

—Spencer Baum, author of The Demon Queen and the Locksmith


A wonderfully written story… Humoristic, witty sentences and well-placed distinctive words creating an ‘out of place’ feeling only adds to the absurd situation that is unfolding within the story… I would recommend anyone to read this book.”
—Erwin Hogeling, Bookseller (Netherlands)

The Wizard and The White House will be released on November 1.
