1. POETRY: The Moon is Always Local: Selected Poems 1984-1995

“Bob Bradley layers his voice and stories in transcendent, rare whispers, to be like the library scene of Wenders’ ‘Wings Of Desire,”** run through Faulkner, ecstatic Whitman, Nabokov, Melville even.  He is a joy to read.”

–Michael Stipe **“Wings of Desire” Library Scene

“I’ve played with the finest spoken word artists: Porter Wagoner, Allen Ginsberg, Marty Stuart, Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash. Bob is up there with the best of them.”

Kenny Vaughan
