The Last Days of Madalyn Murray O’Hair, in Exile
THE LAST DAYS OF MADALYN MURRAY O’HAIR, IN EXILE imagines a different fate for the notorious atheist activist who disappeared several years ago under a shroud of mystery and speculation. In this version, the foul-mouthed and unrepentant Madalyn has embezzled millions from her organization, American Atheists, and is holed up on a South Seas island with her son and granddaughter. As she waits for the money to come through, she is visited by ghosts from her past and fêted by the island natives. Old scores are settled and romance blooms as Madalyn heads towards her own surprising apotheosis. MADALYN is a darkly comic fantasy exploring the treacherous terrain of belief and disbelief.
