J. Bradley dodges traffic, writes book and reads poem. What have you done today?

s320x240At Orlando Fringe 2007, I was a judge in a poetry slam around 11pm at night, out in "The Green" sitting next to Beth Marshall. I was floored at how good the presentations were (and how good my free wine was) and I kept saying (on the mic, in front of an audience, wine in belly) "You guys need to do a Fringe show!" One of those people in the slam was J. Bradley:

Poet/writer J. Bradley will be a featured performer at "Wednesday Open Words" at Austin's Film and Coffee (929 W. Fairbanks Ave., Winter Park, Fl 32789) at 8pm on November 25, 2009. He'll perform his poem "How Esmeralda Estrus Got Her Revenge." Bradley will also be touring across the country for book signings, performances, and workshops in support of his first published bookDodging Traffic.
Reviews of Dodging Traffic:

"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 a 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 knocks at postmodern...stunned today, laughing tomorrow. Dodging Traffic is the classic, the sequel will forever envy."
- Sarah Morgan, author of Animal Ballistics

“Reading J. Bradley's Dodging Traffic is a lot like actually dodging traffic - both are unpredictable, thrilling, surprising. Prepare yourself, because these poems hit hard.”
- Jason Jordan, Editor-in-Chief, decomP Magazine

"J. Bradley has a pen attached to his heart. His heart has its own brain. His brain has its own heart, but we are unsure if there's a pen attached to that."
