Reviews
"Run a live wire straight through the human heart and you might get close to what Chelsea Bieker has done in MADWOMAN, an astonishing, edge-of-your-seat story about an image-obsessed housewife trying to hold her violent childhood at bay. Darkly funny, heart-smashing, and absolutely unforgettable, MADWOMAN is a masterpiece."
--RACHEL YODER, author of NIGHTBITCH
"One of the most essential books about domestic violence I've ever read--MADWOMAN is a breathtaking adventure, a fun house, a house of horrors, and ultimately, a love letter. Chelsea Bieker will break your heart and stun your senses. Chilling, satirical, and grip-your-seat daring, Bieker is a marvel, peerless in her storytelling; you won't be able to turn away from this book, not even for a second."--T KIRA MADDEN, author of LONG LIVE THE TRIBE OF FATHERLESS GIRLS
"MADWOMAN lives at that harrowing edge where despair and violence collide. A story of deceit, delusion, love, and terror, this novel is a scream at dawn, an impossible-to-forget story told by an author whose work I will now forever adore."
--RACHEL LOUISE SNYDER, author of WOMEN WE BURIED, WOMEN WE BURNED and NO VISIBLE BRUISES
"Electrifying and vital, MADWOMAN is literary suspense of the highest order--a page turning study of motherhood, memory, and the menace of an untold past. Chelsea Bieker's propulsive, unsparing take on generational violence is potent and stylish, rendered in prose that's beautiful and devastating all the way down to the heart stopping and unforgettable end. Sexy and turbulent, witty and whip smart, this is a brilliant novel from a blazing, singular talent."--KIMBERLY KING PARSONS, National Book Award-nominated author of BLACK LIGHT and WE WERE THE UNIVERSE
"Madwoman is brilliant. The rare kind of book that lives in your bones, as riveting as it is intimate. This is emotional suspense at its best, but it's also a chronicle of modern womanhood, an exploration of what mothers and daughters do to and for each other, and an ode to hope in the aftermath of trauma. Somehow, Bieker delivers all of this in a voice that is fresh, urgent, and darkly comic. A novel hasn't consumed me like this in a very long time. Madwoman is on my list of all-time favorites."

--Ashley Audrain, New York Times bestselling author of The Push and The Whispers--ASHLEY AUDRAIN, author of THE PUSH and THE WHISPERS
