A collection of prose-poems from J. Bradley in his first foray into fiction. Bradley’s swift cuts and unapologetic style still remains intact in this new frame delighting in tales of Jurassic Park, sexual liaisons, and sexual disgust. Even in the darker times of the twenty story collection the Florida poet goes for a dirty bountiful laugh.
J. Bradley has a poetry collection Dodging Traffic (Ampersand Books, 2009) and is the interview editor of PANK Magazine.
“Rabbit punches are illegal in boxing because they are a potentially fatal blow. The Serial Rapist Sitting Behind You Is A Robot is a series of rabbit punches comprised of poetry, wit, sex and sick. J.Bradley attempts to kill with each piece; packing their tiny structures full of a power reserved for breaking the teeth of cheating spouses. Each piece makes an impact that stuns strong and spreads circular in a visceral ring that will leave the reader wondering, “What just happened here?” After they stagger to their feet, they will taunt him to hit them again and again.”

“Reading J. Bradley’s The Serial Rapist Sitting Behind You Is A Robot is how I imagine drinking beer with Shakespeare would feel—a mixture of elation and embarrassment. This is a collection of “I can’t believe he said that” writing. Like Shakespeare, Bradley is able to cut to the quick with his wit and imagination. His poems are not just cleaver, but poignant examples of love, loss, and life. Every page of this book stages a mini-drama that plays with the most incomprehensible aspects of being human. It is nasty, filthy, fabulous writing.”
