Broken Piano for President: #1 Satire, #6 Bestseller at

Bizarro novel Broken Piano for President by Patrick Wensink (Lazy Fascist Press) exploded in the media early Sunday when news broke of the incredibly kind and generous cease-and-desist letter Jack Daniel’s issued over Broken Piano’s cover. It became the #1 bestselling satire at Amazon (beating out the works of Kurt Vonnegut and Catch-22) and the 6th bestseller overall. This is the highest sales rank a bizarro book has ever achieved. Let’s all raise a glass of Jack Daniel’s and give Patrick Wensink (and the great people at JD) one hell of a toast.

Here is just some of the coverage the book has received so far:
