Mad Dog Tag

ByKim Dallesandro

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Kathleen is dying of cancer. As she reviews her life and reflects on mortality she decides she needs to perform an act that will confirm her humanity. Jesse is a Vietnam veteran, horrifically damaged psychologically and physically. As their lives become entwined, an inexorable series of events is set into motion. Mad Dog Tag is a character-driven psychological study, part love story, part horror, with the fascinating beauty of a slow motion trainwreck. This is the second novel by Kim Dallesandro. “It is not an easy task for a writer to maintain a level of adrenalin throughout an entire work of literature that keeps a reader on the edge of the proverbial seat, and yet, while Mad Dog Tag comes from a very different viewpoint than her first work, Trains, KD manages to sustain the same sense of anticipation and anxiety one feels while immersed in Trains. The reader just does not know what to expect, what will come next.” (Charlotte Herzele MEd, PhD, MED) “Kim Dallesandro has done it again. Superbly crafted with her signature unvarnished prose, Mad Dog Tag is a mesmerizing psychological novella that will swallow the reader whole. Another remarkable achievement by a writer who brings literary conventionality to its knees.” (Díre McCain – author of ‘A Scar is Borne’) “Kim allows us into her true life story with a sense of wisdom and honesty. Her writing is daring and feels like a run on sentence of pain that is being released.” (Christian Madsen)
