Adelle Bradford / The Reading Room
Mania is bottled anxiety, bottled excitement,
part arousal, part madness,
an electricity that both illuminates and electrocutes.
Everyday obsessive mania is the lot of she who creates,
for when she loves her work and needs to birth it,
when ideas flood her brain and she must
arrange them into coherent patterns,
she is driven along by her own relentless passion

What would you do if you thought the Queen of England might drop in for tea? Have you ever whimsically capered? How many geese in a flock? Or is it a gaggle of geese? Or a giggle?
From the serious to the ridiculous and the whimsical to the lyrical, tucked away in these pages you will find essays and poetry to enlighten and entertain, to make you chuckle…or perhaps even weep. Happy songs and sad songs, here is an entertaining book to read again and again.
Seriously funny and thoughful
It was great fun reading this book. I have seldom seen essays and poetry mixed so appropriately and the subjects covered are unique and present a wonderful variety. Especially the essays on "All about Eve" and "Penis Envy" deserve a re-read. And if the concluding article on "Once I met a King - A True Vignette" doesn't touch you, you need help! This book will make a great present to many of my friends.
Life through a new pair of glasses
Adelle Bradford is a true word artist, with the ability to paint vivid, clear, and distinct pictures on the canvas of our minds. In "All About Eve and Other Things" Adelle uses these illustrations to stretch our minds and make us think about things as we peer through lenses, ground with clever wit and hard facts, that correct for the stigmatism of life's influences. The moment I set this book down, I took a deep cleansing breath; rose; took a step; performed a classic double take and swiftly moved to pick it up again. Ms. Bradford's writing is truly a waft of fresh new air, in a world desperate for new perspectives.
All About Eve and Other Things is for sure a delightful and thought inspiring. Ms. Bradford surely makes a person laugh and stop and think about the world around them. I am still laughing about the Dragon Known as Dark. I will recommend this book to all my friends.
