Description

    Ray Bradbury Revisits His Childhood

    Ray Bradbury. Dandelion Wine. Garden City, Doubleday & Company, 1957.

    First edition. Octavo. 281 pages.

    Publisher's yellow cloth with gilt and blue spine titles. Lightly rubbed with darkened top edge and dusted top page edge. Hinges a bit shaken. Toning to endpapers and page edges. Dust jacket is rubbed with light chipping along top edge and spine ends. Edge toned with offsetting to rear panel. A very good copy.

    Dandelion Wine is the first of many semi-autobiographical works produced by Bradbury throughout his career, and structured much like some of his other longer works: largely composed of previously published short stories woven together and linked by transitional vignettes. In this novel, Bradbury revisits his Waukegan childhood through the eyes and adventures of 12-year-old Douglas Spaulding (Bradbury's middle name is Douglas) over the course of one glorious summer in Green Town, Illinois.
