Widow chronicles Madoff son's tragic meltdown amid scandal over father's epic scheme By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' A new book by the widow of Bernard Madoff's (MAY'-dawfs) son offers an intimate look at his torment over his father's epic fraud.

The book by Stephanie Madoff Mack ' "The End of Normal: A Wife's Anguish, A Widow's New Life" ' goes on sale Thursday.

The wife of Mark Madoff writes that he survived a suicide attempt four months before he killed himself on Dec. 11, 2010 ' the second anniversary of his father's arrest.

The book vilifies her father-in-law "Bernie" while calling her husband an innocent bystander and "hero" for turning him in.

The elder Madoff is serving a 150-year prison term for orchestrating a massive Ponzi scheme that wiped out thousands of clients. His two sons and brothers were executives at the Madoff firm but haven't been charged with any crimes.
