Item #31414 DANDELION WINE. Ray Bradbury.


Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1957. Octavo. cloth. Later printing. Inscribed and signed by Bradbury to a well known fan on a label affixed to the front free end paper. 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. This copy bound upside down, otherwise a fine copy in a good dust jacket with rubbing and wear to corners ad spine ends, spine panel age darkened. (31414). Item #31414
