About As Silence Is Your Witness:
Link to a review here, in Swedish.
"...But it's a mystery of an unusual nature, won by unexpected personal experiences, and with a tight linguistic and tonal configuration.The style is prose poems, often built on repetition with variations, and the lines mix the voice of God with revelatory summaries and paradoxical parables. A recurring theme throughout is the journey from confusion to clarity that could appeal to many seeking souls.
Because the theologically unusual thing here is that surrender to fate, or God, not at all leads to submission, but to openness and playfulness. At the same time it's an extremely painful salvation, vulnerability is often equated with a kind of death, for example in the lines that begin the book:
I joyously resign from life, descending
to my own funeral in a scent of flowers.
"...In a way this standpoint is close to the identification with damnation in Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du Mal. You could characterize Brady's project as wholesome decadence, and it will be very interesting to follow her reconstruction of given categories and hierarchies in the following poetry collections."

About Detaljernas tämjare:
It is /.../ a book which should be read slowly, be given pauses, be left to ripen, be left alone, just like real life. It tells us that we don't have to fix everything. We will become humans in time. Let it be, because everything will become itself, the world, humanity.
Pelle Andersson, Aftonbladet
...in the end you feel as a reader gratefulness that she [Brady] actually has managed to turn your gaze towards your own life's little details.
Johanna Hillgren, Hallands Nyheter
This narrator never lets me unreflectingly sink in and become one with the story. Viveka and "all the meaningless details" fascinates me.
Marit Östberg, Smålandsposten
"Villfarelser" is poetry that sparkles, lives, pulsates. I have a hard time sitting still when I read her.
Sverker Lenas, Dagens Nyheter
Her poetry is ambiguous and paradoxical and in many ways more Eastern than Western.
Rikard Holm, Södermanlands Nyheter
About Och den fula ängelen föll:
Regardless of how you read her, Brady very well balances darkness against comedy, the obscure and the dreamlike against clarity and the contemporary, the storyline against the expansive themes.
Jan Karlsson, Bohuslänningen
... there is a charm in the tone, an irreverence /…/ that is refreshing. In the end it is the playful, depreciating style of the poems that makes [Brady’s] book entertaining.
Anders Cullhed, Dagens Nyheter
