This novel is a collection of tales that range from the bizarre to humorous to somewhat disturbing but always entertaining compiled from the author's real life. If you want to explore the strange vicissitudes that life can bring this book is a must but do not be timid as you turn the pages." Douglas (Amazon Customer)

"You simply cannot put this book down! I loved every page and could not stop reading. You keep thinking, "Just one more story. Just one more story." Next thing you know, it's over but you still want "just one more story." CANNOT WAIT for the sequel!" "Army Doc"

"The subtitle says it all, and even if you've never met or heard of J.D. Bradley, it reads exactly like the conversations you have exchanging crazy stories at the bar. This book made for great reading when I was home alone and in need of some good company and good laughs, and was also fun to read aloud amongst friends around the coffee table. Surreality is raunchy, hilarious, brutally truthful, and oddly poetic." Amazon Customer
