The BookViral Review:

In an age where a politician’s every word and their social media posts are endlessly scrutinized, Tales of American Idiocy proves cuttingly allegorical.

Of course, authors have a long history of skewering political drives for tragicomic gain but just because satire is near the knuckle doesn’t detract from the kernels of truth that permeates its pages.

With its acerbic narrative perspective, dark humour, and even its absurdity it’s hard to deny the ever-present element of plausibility in Tales of American Idiocy that makes it quite terrifying and at the very least a damning indictment of America’s political players and society itself.

Regardless of which end of the political spectrum you find yourself on, there’s no denying we live in odd political times where truth is often stranger than fiction.  From corrupt political structures, and shifting societal norms to the rise of puppet politicians Tales of American Idiocy cleverly highlights hot-button issues whilst helping us keep our sense of humour along the way.

Power, control and race are the dominant themes and in exploring these Tales of American Idiocy turns its spotlight on how politicians use wild rhetoric, fear and propaganda to establish themselves in power and exercise control.

“They talk about distributing food equally. But all they distribute equally is poverty and misery,”  Tre says about Comrade Big C and given P R Infidels’ use of animal characters in all but three of the stories it’s not hard to draw comparisons with George Orwell’s Animal Farm.

Though Orwell’s novel is based on events that took place in 1917 its themes have never been more poignant. And like Orwell P R Infidel explores the idea of power leading to corruption with characters like Big C and Dr Foxi manipulating their position of leadership to exploit other animals in addition to other hot topic issues such as Black Lives Matter and the Covid pandemic. The lunacy of the latter being cuttingly observed in “Regarding Covidiocy” where Chester The Cat shares his particular take on the wearing of face masks and the impact of social isolation.

For readers who love entertainment that makes them laugh out loud whilst highlighting the absurdity of issues that in reality are deadly serious, Tales of American Idiocy is a must-read and unreservedly recommended.
