" . . . brilliant, evocative
writing. Bizarre imagination
set free. An enviable skill."
--Consuelo Roland, author of
The Good Cemetery Guide
"Beyond the flawless surface of
his stylistic facility, I am
most impressed by Tom Bradley's
ability to walk the edge of a
tone that is simultaneously irreverent and profoundly serious. His
work derives from the tradition of bawdy and absurdist black comedy of
the late sixties, but is not an imitative slave to that tradition. It
seems to me that Bradley has learned well from that generation of
authors, but has mitigated their example with an even more traditional
moral seriousness. It is a delight to be able to laugh aloud when one
reads, and it is even more satisfying for a reader to feel confident
that there is a significant point to the laughter."
--Gordon Weaver, author of The Way We Know in Dreams
