About the Book

Phillip Samuel Pfurst, owner and CEO, of Pfurst Enterprises WorldWide (PEWW), sat behind his over-sized mahogany desk in the library of his Binghamton mansion. His six-year-old granddaughter Philless was perched on his desk, facing him.

“Sweetie,” he said. “There’s something I want you to tell you. It might be difficult to understand right now, but in time you’ll come to realize that God created American businesses so all the poor people will have jobs. And God created the Pfurst family to run all those businesses. That’s why we sing God Bless America.”

Years later, Phillip Samuel Pfurst (the “P” in his last name is silent) was crippled in a plane crash while campaigning for the presidency of the United States. Convinced that her grandfather’s ‘accident’ was the work of terrorists, Philless turns to her twin brother, Phillip the younger, to fulfill the old man’s dream of a TeraCorp headed by a Supreme Executive Officer (SEXO).

Young Phillip puts aside his dream of becoming a rock’n’roll impresario and enters the world of politics. Problems arise when a number of diaries surface, questioning the Pfurst family’s history and threatening young Phillip’s run for the presidency.

The Pfurst Family Diaries is a wacky, irreverent look at America’s growing political-financial complex run amok, and of Philless Pfurst-Steen’s efforts to change it into a super-efficient TeraCorp headed by a SEXO, while at the same time directing her brother’s presidential election campaign. The book gives new meaning to the old adage-a woman’s work is never done.
