An Age of Madness
A NovelPaperback - 2012
Dr. Regina Moss has built herself a successful career as a psychiatrist in Boston: she enjoys a lucrative private practice, hefty consultation fees, and a reputation that inspires colleagues and patients alike. Why then, is Regina haunted by her past? Why does her own daughter barely speak to her? What's the story with her gruff, softhearted husband Walter--and why can't Regina stop thinking about the lanky new tech on the ward? An Age of Madness peels back the layers of Regina's psyche in a voice that is brash, bitter, and blackly humorous, laying bare her vulnerabilities while drawing the reader unnervingly close to this memorable heroine. From the author of The Preservationist , which was hailed as "hilarious and illuminating" by The Los Angeles Times Book Review and "pithy and smart" by the New York Post , comes the latest turnabout in a career filled with unexpected surprises. An Age of Madness brings a sharp edge of psychological realism to a story filled with startling revelations and heartrending twists.
