Ray Bradbury : the life of fiction by Jonathan R Eller ( Book )
6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ray Bradbury: The Life of Fiction is the first comprehensive textual, bibliographical, and cultural study of sixty years of Bradbury's fiction. Drawing on correspondence with his publishers, agents, and friends, as well as archival manuscripts, The Life of Fiction examines the story of Bradbury's authorship over more than a half-century, from his earliest writings, which include The Martian Chronicles, to his most recently published novel, Let's All Kill Constance. It shows in detail the often devious and unsuspected interconnections between his unpublished fiction, his story collections, and his most celebrated novels." "The Life of Fiction focuses on the nature of Bradbury's authorship, exploring his profound involvement with the life of "carnival" as a textual process as well as a thematic concern in his writings, and each chapter of this book delves more deeply into how this process of meaning has shaped Bradbury's technique over the years. Bradbury's authorship is finally seen as occupying a unique position in our literary landscape - one that operates on the borders of popular entertainment and serious literature." "Ray Bradbury: The Life of Fiction will be welcomed by Bradbury fans and scholar, adding greatly to the understanding of his work and affecting the way Bradbury is read."--Jacket

Summer morning, summer night by Ray Bradbury ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As intoxicating as Bradbury's legendary Dandelion Wine, the 27 new and old stories in this potent collection resonate with timeless power. All set in Green Town, Ill., the vintage highlights include "Miss Bidwell," a sweet romance about a spinster and the delayed homecoming of her first love; the brilliant "The Screaming Woman," featuring the wide-eyed first person narration of a frantic 10-year-old who discovers a woman's premature burial; and "At Midnight, in the Month of June," in which a killer plays a demented game of hide and seek. Contemporary one-page shorts such as "The River that Went to the Sea" and "The Projector" round out a lyrical feast with the savor of "apricots and fresh apples and as water tastes when you rise at night and walk into a dark warm summer kitchen and drink from a cool tin cup.""--Publishers weekly, starred review
