Oct 04, 2009 – Michael Madsen is more than just the critically acclaimed actor best known for his role as Mr. Blonde in Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs, he is also a prize winning poet. Michael’s first professionally published book, Burning in Paradise, won the Independent Firecracker Award in 1998. The Complete Poetic Works of Michael Madsen, Vol. I: 1995-2005, which was published by 13 Hands Publications in 2005, is a complete ten year volume and compilation of his work. He has since chronicled his life and travels as an actor and photographer in Signs of Life (2006) and in 2008 Michael gained international attention when his book Burning In Paradise was translated in Norwegian for the first time. He has since then been invited to Italy and Mexico as a poet.
Michael Madsen’s latest book, American Badass (released on September 25, 2009) is a stunning photo journey of Madsen’s iconic and cinematic history interspersed with new poetry. Michael Madsen continues to turn in edge-of-the-seat performances, but his poetry continues to tell the backstory of his life. This is a rare opportunity to meet Michael Madsen in person.
The Petersen Automotive Museum Bookstore is located at: 6060 Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles at Wilshire and Fairfax.
