The Wizard and the White House is Mike Maggio’s latest book. “A socio-political satire of uncanny proportions,” this humorous novel explores the cultural and political environment in contemporary American society.
Here’s what’s being said about The Wizard and the White House:
Mike Maggio has written a wonderful magical mystery novel.
In The Wizard and the White House we find characters
with different ethnic and religious backgrounds floating
and disappearing as a story unfolds. Maggio keeps the
reader’s hand on the page. As East meets West we begin
to understand good and evil. Maggio uses satire like a spice.
– E. Ethelbert Miller, author of How We Sleep on the Nights We Don’t Make Love
One weird, wild, original, imaginative, parodic book—funny, serious, and enlarged by its big and generous heart!
—Sophy 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.
—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.
—Erwin Hogeling, Bookseller (Netherlands)
