Author Kirsten EA Borg launches new press campaign for 2014 novel “Politicians in Purgatory”

What happens when world leaders from the Cold War meet in the afterlife to discuss their choices?

LIBERTY, Mo., June 1, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Cold War world leaders are on trial in purgatory to determine responsibility for decades of debilitating conflict. On the scales of justice, does good outweigh evil? Readers are on the jury when they read Kirsten EA Borg’s intriguing novel “Politicians in Purgatory” (published by Trafford Publishing).

First published in 2014, the book is set in purgatory where women lead the trial. Justice is the judge in charge, assisted by the devil’s advocate for the prosecution, the guardian angel for the defense and the recording angel Clio who reports the whole truth about what really happened. Here, Winston Churchill, Charles de GaulleNikita Khrushchev, Jawaharlal Nehru and Lyndon B. Johnson are reunited, judged for their respective roles in the Cold War. They must all tell the truth as they know it. Their choices are established to determine their responsibility in starting and/or stopping the war. Was it necessary? How will they be condemned for what they have done and have not done?

“Politicians in Purgatory” is a well-told story that mixes satire and humor. Its unique docudrama structure will appeal to history buffs for its precision, and its whimsical storyline will appeal to those not into the historical genre.

When asked what she wanted readers to take away from the book, the author replied, “Knowledge of the past is essential to understanding the present. The Cold War was not in black and white, but in shades of gray.”
