Biography / History
Richard Bradford was a writer based in Santa Fe. Originally from New Orleans, he arrived in Santa Fe at age 12 during World War II. He was known as an appreciative observer of New Mexico life and as a man who loved New Mexico. In 1968, J.B. Lippincott published Bradford's Red Sky At Morning, a book that some critics compared to J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye and Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird. Universal Pictures released the film version of Red Sky At Morning in 1970. So Far From Heaven was his second novel, published in 1973. Richard Bradford died in 2002 at the age of 70.
