    The long awaited release ofNothing but the Dead and Dying is exactly that, a collection of short stories that all revolve around the dead, the dying, and the not yet born Prepare yourself for sex and unwanted pregnancies, ill infants and parents who just can t deal, people recovering from or suffering because of something, a couple of dead dogs, and a handful of absent fathers Within these beautifully told stories, Ryan has created tiny worlds that are just as bleak and ruthless as the cold, Ala [...]

    Perused through the majority of this bad boy in one fiery, surreal Sunday while nursing a monster hangover and slipping back and forth into unconsciousness It was perfect, lead me to dream dreams filled with snow, drama and domestic tragedies It s my third Bradley and while I find his style thoroughly engaging and his honesty raw and destabilizing, I was surprised not to find his trademark haunting spareness in this collectionTHING BUT THE DEAD AND DYING has in common with a gritty Raymond Carv [...]

    Stands with Hemingway s earlier short works, or, Salinger s Nine Stories , as a strong memorable collection of stories I m going to read from this author.

    This is a very, very good collection Actually, you know what It s a great collection I read Bradley s Winterswim a while back, and I loved that one, too Winterswim edged close to horror at times I mean, there were some wonderfully nasty bits in that one But Nothing but the Dead and Dying took me to another place It took me back into a kind of Carver country I have dubbed Ryan W Bradley the Alaskan Raymond Carver after reading these tales, and I think you ll know why once you pick the book up The [...]

    I loved all the stories I read in Ryan Bradley s Nothing But the Dead and Dying, straightforward, real tales about people who don t seem to have been born with a lot of luck, who don t seem to make a lot on their own Bradley dishes it, dishes it hard, making for a sobering read.

    The title of Ryan W Bradley s eighth book, NOTHING BUT THE DEAD AND DYING, pulls no punches Set in Alaska, these two dozen stories are about a dead and dying part of the world, thanks to climate change, and the dead and dying white working class men that have become a media talking point in this year s election Bradley s characters work the pipelines, drive the oil tankers, and dig giant trenches in mud and ice They work long hours, separated from their wives and children They are dying, from ov [...]
