Rose Madder

About This Episode

She is Rosie, Rosie Real.

This week we take a small break from the Dark Tower series to look at Stephen King's Rose Madder, published in 1994. Autumn Greer and Evan Jones Thorne join me to talk about Rosie's flight from the terrifying and abusive Norman Daniels, one of King's scariest villains. We also look at the connections between Rosie's world and that of Roland. There are more than you might think.

A quick warning: This book contains some upsetting subject matter. Even more than you might usually find in a horror book written by Stephen King. So please, pause and think about whether or not hearing/reading about sexual abuse or domestic abuse might ruin your day.
