BOMB BABY by TOM BRADLEY
Readers of Tom Bradley need no introduction to this household name of the absurd with his trademark style of bringing disparate elements together and making them resonate.
Hiroshima, fifty years after the fact...
The title character was in utero at the moment of the glamorous detonation. As a result of prenatal exposure to gamma rays, he is tiny and mentally deficient, but his physical vigor is unimpaired. Living on a makeshift raft on the river that runs through town, he only comes ashore to disrupt high-tone weddings at Hiroshima Cathedral. It’s a hobby for him.
He disappears soon after spoiling a Yakuza wedding. This doesn’t sit well with the leading lights of the expatriate Papist community, who’ve adopted the bomb baby as a mascot. They dispatch Sam Edwine, a reluctant and inefficient American slob, to scour “Boom Town’s” sordid and musty places, of which there is a wide assortment.
Tom Bradley, this enormously misplaced exile, as he enters his second quarter century commuting back and forth between Hiroshima and “Naga-etcetera,” would make Lafcadio Hearn reel with laughter, if not shake his head in wonder.
— Lolita Lark, editor of RALPH Magazine
Tom Bradley is one of the most misunderstood and ill-appreciated master-writers on the planet... This spectacular literary Lucifer, star of the East, talks like Hume might be imagined to have spoken to the comely Grisettes of pre-Revolutionary Paris (Well, here we are, young ladies! Here we are!)...
— Jesse Glass, author of The Lost Poet
I tell you that Dr. Bradley has devoted his existence to writing, number one, because it’s fun (I mean the big complicated fun that none of us can ever hope to imagine, except during infinitesimally brief and rare moments in nature), and, number two, because he intends for everycenter of consciousness, everywhere, in all planes and conditions (not just terrestrial female Homo sapiens in breeding prime) to love him, forever, starting as soon as possible, though he’s prepared to wait thousands of centuries after he’s dead, or even longer if it turns out to be necessary. That’s the ambition he cherishes. Talk about an ability to defer gratification...
