"Ti preghiamo di riprovare"
David L. Bradley left the blue-collar world in his mid-forties to enroll in college and indulge his love for digging into the past. Nowadays, when not making documentary films about the American South or teaching kids how to make movies, he writes novels and screenplays set against her history. He lives in Atlanta with his wife, his two children, a dog, a cat, and a hundred squirrels. His hobbies are studiously avoiding hobbies and collecting wrinkles. He speaks fluent Southern, and he is a honors graduate of Vacation Bible School, having attended from 1966 until 1971.

I enjoyed the book's free flowing dialogue and the trips through the diaries into the prideful southern past. The dream sequences bring together Past, Present, and Supernatural. And Legend. And Fact.
Only those with uniquely opened mind see the axe wielding ghost of local lore. But as the drama builds and then climaxes, a malevolent, misconceived, mulatto truth bares its glinting, keen edged teeth--evoking revulsion, revelation, and redemption. You will have to read the book to figure that one out!
There's even a dangerous, track crossing, small South romance. And a geometric methodology primer. Who could ask for more?
Is there some autobiography, or as Kosinski called it, "autofiction" going on here? The author's refined sense of history, currency, and reasoned opinion translate into a thinker's read. I hope to devour more pages of the adventures of Citizen Addison Kane. Can't wait for Addison's next project. Help the Boy!
So often they are keen and quick to toss out gratuitous plot as audience incentive rather than swaddle them in a storyline that is vivid, engaging and progressive.
David Bradley is guilty of no such punches.
His works offer textured narrative replete with thoughtful characters and rolling dialogue that would turn any writing teams for any primetime programing deep green.
I am an immense fan of Mr. Bradley's and look forward, but couldn't attempt to anticipate, his next pen stroke.
