Reviews

Praise for "Dogwalker "Turtleface and Beyond is filled with glorious little fables that are both yummy and nourishing." --Matt Stone, co-creator of South Park and The Book of Mormon"Arthur Bradford has the strange, poetic humor of a real writer, but his outlandish plots involving animals and/or underachievers read like pulpy page-turners. While reading Turtleface and Beyond, I couldn't wait to find out what happened to these injured turtles and oversexed beach bums." --Sarah Vowell"Arthur Bradford's stories are told plainly yet seductively. You might call them funny and lovely and laconic until you get to the twist and damage that swims beneath them like an unseen snapping turtle. They take straight roads to crooked places and I would read them all day until I was done and you should too." --John Hodgman"Writer and filmmaker Bradford will appeal to David Sedaris fans willing to visit the wrong side of the tracks . . . With bad choices and bizarre situations aplenty, Turtleface and Beyond encourages the reader simply to laugh at the strange turns life can take." --Booklist"Arthur Bradford's work is uncategorizable and unprecedented... His stories are hilarious and strange, playful and deadpan, and often involve animals and strange injuries to these animals or their human friends. The world of Bradford's fiction is populated by dreamers, doofuses, banalities, and mysteries, and somehow it's a world you don't want to leave." --Dave Eggers -Turtleface and Beyond is filled with glorious little fables that are both yummy and nourishing.- --Matt Stone, co-creator of South Park and The Book of Mormon-Arthur Bradford has the strange, poetic humor of a real writer, but his outlandish plots involving animals and/or underachievers read like pulpy page-turners.
