This is the only authorized, comprehensive compilation of Michael Madsen's poetry available anywhere. A "must have" for any Madsen fan!
He's a throw-back to the true spirit of the Beats...An Anachronistic Beat.
Madsen is a grand storyteller as you follow him through his wild times at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood to the rain-soaked streets of Luxembourg to the historic western film locations in Durango, Mexico where John Wayne's ranch used to be, to a near-death experience in Bucharest.
However, this book is not all about the "road to excess." His family, his friends, his pets, and those personal, evanescent moments as he has observed and recorded them, are all captured in this 10 Year Anniversary Edition. He also possesses a shrewd sense of humor.
A veritable feast for the eyes, "The Complete Poetic Works of Michael Madsen," offers many rare photographs-- there is the original flyer from the Steppenwolf Theatre where Madsen began his acting career included in this book, along with over 50 other personal photos on and off the set.
Rexroth, Kerouac, Ginsberg, Bukowski would all agree that "those poets of immensity" have got nothing on Michael Madsen.From the Back Cover:
"...for me, the real journey that Michael, the writer, is exploring is what it means to be a man in a world where the notions of 'manhood' that some of us grew up with are barely remembered at best, or ridiculed at worst. But then if everybody embarked on the Hero's Journey, everybody would be a hero, wouldn't they?"-Quentin Tarantino
"When you open these pages you will be astounded by his insight into the minds and hearts of regular folks like you and me. He'll make you laugh and he'll make you cry and things will never look the same to you again." -David Carradine. "This actor is a poet...our best. I'm proud to know him a little. His words show me a lot about me. A laugh, a tear. He talks of now." -Dennis Hopper
You don't expect a man best known for cutting off a cop's ear to be an accomplished poet.
Perhaps one of the great movie tough guys of the past twenty years or so, Michael Madsen doesn't initially seem the type of guy to pick up a pen and ponder his innermost feelings. But, in addition to appearing in movies like "Reservoir Dogs," "Donnie Brasco," and "Kill Bill, Vol. 2," he's actually written several poetry books...Madsen isn't prone to the pretentious self-important ramblings of many celebrity poets, but is honest, straightforward, at times profane...even his most bizarre musings seem to come straigt from the heart.
Much like his screen persona, his writing voice is witty, tough and oddly affecting. He's often even profound, as in the touching, intelligent "Yesterday," in which he reflects the part of his life that has passed. His writing, like his acting, is never boring and, often quite memorable. -Amanda Cuda, Curled Up With A Good Book
