He is the author or editor of numerous books, including Book of Rhymes; The Poetry of Pop; The Anthology of Rap; and the New York Times-bestseller One Day It’ll All Make Sense, a memoir he wrote for the rapper and actor Common. Dr. Bradley began studying the literature of Ralph Ellison as a 19-year-old research assistant to Ellison’s literary executor, Dr. John F. Callahan. In the years that followed, he and Dr. Callahan co-edited the posthumous edition of Ellison’s second novel, Three Days Before the Shooting. Dr. Bradley also authored a study of Ellison’s life and fiction entitled Ralph Ellison in Progress. He is now completing the annotated edition of Invisible Man for Random House. Dr. Bradley’s writing and commentary appear regularly in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, and in many other publications.
