Received - Dodging Traffic by J Bradley

Dodging Traffic by J Bradley - Ampersand Books

"J Bradley is the Veruca Salt of the literary chocolate factory, writing with a satirical brazenness that leaves cavities among the reader's eyes. There is a sugary darkness to his work and lackadaisical charm; that of a black-market dental hygienist. J delivers new audacity, important romance, and certainty. He acknowledges the sensational ugly without apprehension. His ideas are of an entirely different species and his wit laughs at postmodern... stunned today, laughing tomorrow. Dodging Traffic is the classic, the sequel will forever envy. - Sarah Morgan

"Reading J Bradley's Dodging Traffic is a lot like actually dodging traffic - both are unpredictable, thrilling, surprising. Prepare yourself because these are poems that hit hard." - Jason Jordan

"J Bradley has a pen attached to his heart. His heart has its own brain. His brain has its own heart as well, but we are unsure if there's a pen hooked up to that." Robbie Q Telfer

J Bradley is the slammaster of Broken Speech, Florida's longest running poetry slam. His work has appeared in over 40 journals in 2009 alone, earning him credit as one of the most prolific and creative talents at work today. This is his first collection.
