The twenty-plus stories in this collection are tied together by the Alaskan landscape, exploring the diverse ways in which people manage life's difficulties. The characters are laborers in a harshly beautiful environment, something that is echoed in their relationships with friends, family, and lovers.

A woman flees the hospital even as her infant son is breathing his last breaths. An aging construction worker comes to grips with the end of the only life he's ever known. A deadbeat father meets his son for the first time, only to be blindsided by the boy's birth defect. A man steals a corpse in order to give his father the burial he wanted.

In Nothing but the Dead and Dying, Ryan W. Bradley takes listeners into the world of blue-collar Alaska, reflecting on all that is unique about the rough and untamed state while touching on the basic truths about what it means to be human.

About the Author:

Ryan W. Bradley has pumped gas, changed oil, painted houses, swept the floor of a mechanic's shop, worked on a construction crew in the Arctic Circle, fronted a punk band, and managed an independent children's bookstore. He is the author of eight books, including Prize Winners, Code for Failure, and Winterswim.

Review:

'Ryan W. Bradley's stories grab you by the balls and don't let go.'' --Bonnie Jo Campbell, National Book Award-nominated author

"Just like the State of Alaska itself, in which they're set, the stories in Ryan Bradley's Nothing But the Dead and Dying are beautiful, dangerous, hardcore, and strong enough to break your ice-brittled bones... Bradley goes full throttle down an icy road with these stories. GodDAMN, can he ever drive a story!" --David Abrams, author of Fobbit
