A VISIT TO MADAME WUS is a bittersweet coming-of-age love story set primarily in the mid-1950s to 1960s—a timeline extending from the Korean War to shortly after the assassination of President Kennedy, and the beginning of the years of “sexualMoreA VISIT TO MADAME WUS is a bittersweet coming-of-age love story set primarily in the mid-1950s to 1960s—a timeline extending from the Korean War to shortly after the assassination of President Kennedy, and the beginning of the years of “sexual revolution” in the United States.Ed Delancey is a rough-hewn, highly-opinionated man whose ideology is decades ahead of his time. He makes what appear to be outlandish predictions in the areas of politics, economics, and sociology.In the spring of 1953, Delancey takes Dan Greenbaum, a naive twenty year old from Iowa, to Madame Wu’s brothel in Chicago. What happens there changes Dan’s life forever, starting him on a lengthy quest for answers.This important work by a skilled author contains a strong underlying message: Bigotry, prejudice, and hypocrisy are inherently wrong, whether they relate to ethnicity, religion, politics, relationships, or sexual preferences and practices.Some may criticize A Visit to Madame Wu’s strongly libertarian philosophy and values, as well as its depiction of explicit sexual situations. Mature readers will appreciate the book’s frankness in dealing with these important subjects.
