The Mouse Who Poked an Elephant

T year is 2019. The Trimp administration has been in power in the US for two years, and Canadian Prime Minister Dustin Trudel is up for re-election. But there’s a new smoke show in town, and his name is Elijah. Elijah—just like Cher, Bono and Jesus—goes by one name only. He’s hip, funny, black, bisexual, trilingual and dangerously handsome…in other words, Elijah is a Canadian demographer’s wet dream.

The enormously popular CBC talk show host wants Trudel’s job, but only so that he can give the power back to the people. His newly formed political party, the Independent People’s Party, is quickly gaining traction across the country, but Elijah’s radical views on how to improve life for all Canadians (and all denizens of this planet), don’t sit well with everyone—least of all, US President Donald J. Trimp. When Elijah and the IPP win the election by a landslide majority, the newly minted PM makes some very pointed demands of “The Donald,” who doesn’t take to getting orders from anybody, especially not “a real punk and a big loser” like the Canadian prime minister.

One part hilarious and three parts terrifying, this thoughtprovoking work of “speculative political fiction,” will have you laughing your pants off one minute while scaring the living (bleep) out of you the next.

    Fans of the 45th US President (depicted as “Trimp”) will not be amused. His opponents will enjoy the speculative satire. The author offers a fictional interpretation of how Canadians will react during the next economic contraction within their own country and their interactions with others, particularly the United States.

    The goal of satire is humor and to this extent, the author’s characters are engaging and funny. The book casts attention on broader societal issues. You may not agree with his criticisms, though it does not detract from reading enjoyment. As a writer myself of a near-term fictional series with politics, financial crisis, cyber terror and the media, Mr. Piper’s fictional account can only add to the discourse.
