mR. bERZERKELEY: The Naked Mayor of Berkeley
About the Author
Jack McLaughlin's love for Berkeley—its citizens and its past, present, and future—inspired him to invite others to experience a taste of another city by the bay. He always keeps Berkeley close to his heart and promises to live near the "Gourmet Ghetto" forever.
About my latest book, mR. bERZERKELEY: The Naked Mayor of Berkeley
Ask anyone: Jim Sain is a pompous, naked, free thinker. He's also the mayor of Berkeley.
One of his high school chums has moved back to renovate Hamilton House, one wacky adventure at a time, and who knows what's coming next? The mayor has been dubbed "mR. bERZERKELEY" by a cartoonist who is determined to embarrass him (and undermine his bid for reelection). His personal life is as colorful as his political life. He gives his detractors plenty of fodder to fuel his demise (but in his eyes, these are not signs of moral weakness).
In this spoof that cheerfully brings the sixties into the twenty-ﬁrst century, Jim’s buﬀoonery as he interacts with boarding-house residents creates a wild smorgasbord of political, mysterious, sexual, and otherwise edgy adventures. A cartoonist, a naïve freshman, a reformed prostitute, lesbian lovers, a sarcastic cook (his mother), the deformed son of a university bigwig, and a Kansas politician are some of the characters who spark energy back into the old house and bring classic Berkeley lore to life.
mR. bERZERKELEY is Jack McLaughlin's love song to a city like no other.
