Five years ago, Chad Kultgen’s first novel, The Average American Male, was launched
to a storm of controversy-fueled in part by a viral video campaign that
garnered international media attention. An outrage to the prim and prudish, the
novel, with its callous yet charismatic narrator, became a cult classic,
embraced by male and female readers alike who recognized the often hilarious,
often uncomfortable truth behind Kultgen’s satirical take on the world.
Now Kultgen’s narrator is back. He still revels in
objectifying women, killing time with video games, and stealing any remaining

As relentlessly obsessive as its precursor, The Average American Marriage takes
satire to new heights of cockeyed depravity-while adding a new chapter to
Kultgen’s unique take on the never-ending battle of the sexes. Download and start listening now!
