MEDIA REVIEWS
"Boondock Kollage is an intricate collection of stories that will be new yet deeply familiar to any reader. These tales are new because they take place in rural Georgia, in a specific tree and lake studded landscape peopled with small, particular communities; they are familiar because the characters that people this place, with their wide, sloped shoulders, their intricate wigs, the way they shuffle and joke and comfort and misunderstand and shore each other up, are achingly human. In Bradley's hands, these varied pieces cohere into a deeply compelling, moving work of art. This collection will be deeply satisfying for the reader who wants to experience the full range of human emotion, who wants to feel fear, triumph, bone-deep sadness, and bright joy, because this author does it all." Jesmyn Ward, Associate Professor of English, Tulane University; author of Men We Reaped and Salvage the Bones
"Regina Bradley is a gifted writer who makes contemporary southern black life visible and viable. She writes us as our beautiful, black, redeemable selves. Boondock Kollage is a masterful collection of twelve short stories that introduces Bradley as an up-and-coming storyteller who's been hearing and telling stories all of her life. This is her heart project, and she gives us her heart. The intimacy and familiarity from which she writes southern black life not only humanizes us, it loves (on) us. Her carefully crafted prose gives a glimpse of black folk and black life in the post-Civil Rights black South, offering a mirror so we can see ourselves and our memories in line after line, page after page, story after story. You will carry her stories, her characters, and her characterizations with you. They feel like home. They feel like us. They feel like ours." Robin M. Boylorn, Associate Professor of Interpersonal and Intercultural Communication, The University of Alabama; author of Sweetwater: Black Women and Narratives of Resilience
