March 23, 2015: Nebula-nominated author, editor of Goblin Fruit, and NPR reviewer Amal El-Mohtar reviewed The Haunted Girl for Lightspeed magazine:
“There is a theme, throughout the collection, of false prisons and false escapes, reflections on who and where one is and where one’s going. … at the collection’s core: resistance to norms, to imposition, be they of language, sexuality, or mortality. There is a sharpness, a sting to most of these poems, of the kind that makes you hiss and then seek it out again. I loved the collection’s bilingualism, both in the presence of Spanish and the musings on being between languages, on the thermodynamics of translation…”
December 5, 2014: Author and translator David Bowles reviewed The Haunted Girl for my hometown newspaper, The Monitor: “Bradley possesses a real gift for language and unflinching insight into the best and worst of human nature.” At Stone Telling, editor and author Alex Dally MacFarlane has also reviewed the collection.
