Madness is Better Than Defeat starts in 1938, when two rival expeditions set off for a lost Mayan temple in the jungles of Honduras, one intending to shoot a screwball comedy on location there, the other intending to disassemble it and ship it back to New York. A seemingly endless stalemate ensues, and twenty years later, when a rogue CIA agent learns that both expeditions are still out in the wilderness, he embarks on a mission to exploit the temple as a geopolitical pawn. But the mission hurtles towards disaster when he discovers that the temple is the locus of grander conspiracies than anyone could have guessed.
Every Fox is a Rabid Fox has been described by Claire Fuller as 'a harrowing and brutal read with an incredibly tender heart'. It's a novel that reflects on class, mental illness and how the toxix masculinity of older generations is passed down to its children's detriment.
