Amanda J. Bradley's Hints and Allegations is now available.

10/09/2009
Amanda J. Bradley's debut book of poems from NYQ Books, Hints and Allegations, takes the reader on an inward journey from a place of disturbance to a recovered equilibrium. These poems probe intense scenarios and emotional states then step back to inquire what sense can be made of them. Delving for a purpose becomes a purpose in itself and ultimately reaffirms a life well examined. As F. D. Reeve observes, "Bradley creates a fresh figure of triumph through her sensitive, far-reaching poems. The language is both affectionate and stark, gentle and bitter, but always sharp, always poignant...Here's a poet excellently (and ironically) giving us what, in the closing lines of this book she says we can't have—namely, the sense of what matters."
