Houston, TX, December 28, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Mike Waleke has attempted to provide the youths of today with an alternative to video games. In his book he uses a variety of rarely used and never used literary devices to draw the reader in to the story. Using a tongue and cheek writing style he forces humor to support the plot rather than suspense. This modern day novel takes full advantage of the connectedness of today’s society, and therefore it should come as no surprise that The Pianoman was published in conjunction with Lulu (www.lulu.com), the world’s fastest-growing provider of print-on-demand books.
The Pianoman starts off with a simple plot and then veers drastically off topic. It is thinly veiled as a true story however its over the top nature quickly clues the reader in that this is far from the truth. The book makes use of a plethora of footnotes and even a thoroughly incomplete index; all of which serve to further entrap the reader in a bout of laughter.
Mike Waleke wrote The Pianoman for one reason, and that was to create a book designed for his generation and its fast pace world of instant text messages and video games. “I wanted a book that even all my friends who don’t read would actually enjoy,” said Mike Waleke. The author chose Lulu because he felt its modern age printing process was most fitting to the type of book it was. The Pianoman is of course available for purchase at www.lulu.com, as well as other internet retailers.
