In Madson, Kade creates a work without comparison in recent American literature, an unapologetic novel that breaks the reader against the rocks of today's bleached bare politically correct culture. A novel at once comical and terrifyingly shocking, Madson doesn’t explain as much as it explodes on the page the nature of affliction and madness, society’s moral decay, loathing and desire. A hypnotic, unnerving, and torturous satire that depicts the spoils of fame and the bedrock lunacy of the modern world. This book is a provocative, breathtaking, and disturbing masterwork of a brilliant, unflinching journey into the mind of a serial killer. Madson is the antihero for our deranged times.
