Item #31413 DANDELION WINE. Ray Bradbury.


Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1957. Octavo. cloth. First edition. Inscribed and signed by Bradbury to a well known fan on the front free end paper with a drawing of a Dandelion. Set in small town America in the summer of 1928, a time right before the Great Depression and WW II. "A bucolic evocation of Bradbury's youth through rose-colored glasses. Though not strictly fantastic, this poetic blend of nostalgia and ever-so-slightly macabre happenings defines the author's view of the past as a country of the bizarre and the wonderful, and is central to Bradbury's fantasy world." - Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 4A-44. "The poignant quality of Bradbury's writing, the evocative elements that will capture others than his usual audience, combine to make this an unusual reading experience." Kirkus Review 1 March 1975 (from a new release). Pringle, Modern Fantasy: The Hundred Best Novels 19. Label remnant to front free end paper, a fine copy in a just about fine dust jacket with mild toning to the spine panel and rear panel edges, a touch of shelf wear to the extremities. Book review laid in. (31413). Item #31413
