An insightful and funny tale that feels like therapeutic relief working through the extremity of the views surrounding us. Simultaneously entertaining and thought provoking.

Author Wayne Lobdell has published his compelling political fiction book that brings together two at-odds characters – Rachel, an intellectual, liberal woman, and Sean, an articulate, conservative businessman – and gives them each the floor to extrapolate on their philosophies, priorities, and opinions. Moderated by Jackson, a well-read, politically middle-ground bartender, the duo manages to find common ground on everything from economic issues to immigration to guns.

“Rachel versus Sean with Jackson in the Middle” takes place throughout two long, contentious, and sometimes humorous debates in which Rachel, Sean, and Jackson explore historic differences on divisive, hot-button issues between the Republican and Democratic parties and craft innovative ideas and compromises that still pay homage to each party’s unique foundation and ultimate goals. Jackson, self-taught and knowledge-hungry, peppers the dialogue with presidential trivia and humorous anecdotes.

“This book came about as a result of my love to write and my passion for following all things politics,” Lobdell said. “I have long felt that Washington needs to look at both sides of the issues and do a better job of seeking to find compromise.”

As the nation braces for a contentious 2020 presidential election, “Rachel versus Sean with Jackson in the Middle” provides an entertaining respite that can ultimately help readers to understand opposing views and evaluate key political issues in depth from multiple angles.

“Such a perfect book for our politically confused times,” a reader wrote in a five-star Amazon review of the book. “An insightful and funny tale that feels like therapeutic relief working through the extremity of the views surrounding us. Simultaneously entertaining and thought provoking. Highly recommend!”
