The Schmooze

Madoff Family Member Shopping Around Tell-All Book

Perhaps it was inevitable that someone in the Madoff clan would eventually write a tell-all.

If she gets her way, that family member will be Stephanie Morgan, the former daughter-in-law of Bernie and Ruth Madoff. New York magazine reports that Morgan is currently shopping a memoir to publishers, promising a story that portrays her as “strong-minded woman overcoming tragedy and moving ahead with life.”

The Shmooze didn’t initially like the idea of a Madoff family member profiting from Bernie’s $65 billion Ponzi scheme, which ruined many lives and did massive damage to numerous charities. But Morgan is at least partly a victim herself, since her husband, Mark Madoff, killed himself in December — a suicide allegedly caused by shame over his father’s crimes.
