The Bradbury chronicles; the life of Ray Bradbury.

Weller, Sam.

William Morrow & Co., [c]2005

384 p.

$26.95

Weller's portrait of Ray Bradbury captures the contradictions of the writer who envisioned rocket travel to outer space but never learned to drive a car or operate a computer. The biography is based on Bradbury's private archives and Weller's interviews with Bradbury's friends, family members, colleagues and Bradbury himself. Weller is a journalist and professor at Columbia College Chicago, where he teaches a class on Bradbury's life and work.
