Clapton: The Autobiography by Eric Clapton
Clapton: The Autobiography

P.M. Bradshaw, July 1, 2015

If you're a Clapton fan, this is pretty good. It details Clapton's life from childhood to the present - warts and all. He discusses his many romantic failings, his drug abuse, and his alcoholism in great detail. An interesting read.

What Matters Most is How Well You Walk Through the Fire by Charles Bukowski
What Matters Most is How Well You Walk Through the Fire

P.M. Bradshaw, June 29, 2015

While probably not as good as "Love is a Dog From Hell" this is a great book of poetry. Bukowski is at the top of his form looking at both himself and the world around him. A stunning collection of poems!

Ms. Marvel Volume 2: Generation Why by G. Willow Wilson
Ms. Marvel Volume 2: Generation Why

P.M. Bradshaw, May 5, 2015

The further adventures of teenage Ms. Marvel, coming to grips with her new powers. Not as good as Volume 1, and a little preachy in its expository conversations, but still a fun graphic novel. I’m not sure why the bird-headed clone of Thomas Edison is evil, but the ride is still worth taking.

The Damned Volume 1: Three Days Dead by Cullen Bunn
The Damned Volume 1: Three Days Dead

P.M. Bradshaw, April 23, 2015

The Damned is a great piece of Demon-Noir if ever there was one. Dare I say it is better than Ed Brubaker’s somewhat similar Fatale series. This succeeds where the other ��" maybe not failed but meandered ��" in its conciseness. It sets up a universe, sets up a story, and sticks to it, singularly, till the end.

The story, by Cullen Bunn, is well told, though maybe a touch heavy on the noir slang. But with prohibition-era demon mobsters jockeying for control, you can’t really go wrong. The artwork by Brian Hurtt is phenomenal, both illustrating and pacing out the story nicely. I would love to see a second volume from this team.

Advice to Writers: A Compendium of Quotes, Anecdotes, and Writerly Wisdom from a Dazzling Array Of Literary Lights by Jon Winokur
Advice to Writers: A Compendium of Quotes, Anecdotes, and Writerly Wisdom from a Dazzling Array Of Literary Lights

P.M. Bradshaw, April 15, 2015

A great gift for the writer or English major in your life. A wonderful little book of quotes on everything about writing, from Ernest Hemingway, Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams, William Faulkner, Henry Miller, T.S. Eliot, and more. Some are very funny. Others are thought-provoking. A fun read!
