The first fully authorized biography illuminates the fascinating mind of Ray Bradbury, the legendary writer who has imprinted his one-of-a-kind "tattoo" on modern culture. 16-page photo insert.
From the Publisher:

Accomplished journalist Sam Weller met the Ray Bradbury while writing a cover story for the Chicago Tribune Magazine and spent hundreds of hours interviewing Bradbury, his editors, family members, and longtime friends. With unprecedented access to private archives, he uncovered never–before–published letters, documents, and photographs that help tell the story of this literary genius and his remarkable creative journey. The result is a richly textured, detailed biography that illuminates the origins and accomplishments of Bradbury's fascinating mind.

Annotation:
This authorized biography of famed science fiction writer Ray Bradbury is a fairly positive rendering of the author's life and the influences on his work, from his birth (which Bradbury claims to remember) in Waukegan, Illinois, to his early love of comics and film and his fear of the dark, to his steady employment as a short-story writer for the pulp magazines, to his runaway success with such groundbreaking books as THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES and FAHRENHEIT 451, and finally, to his 2003 dispute with Michael Moore regarding the title of Moore's documentary FAHRENHEIT 9/11.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"A proficient study of a prodigious talent still going strong." 03/01/2005

New York Times Book Review
"[F]or Bradbury fans, THE BRADBURY CHRONICLES is essential. Even for those who only hazily remember reading THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES decades ago, the ascent to literary stardom of the man Time called 'The Poet of the Pulps' is an engaging, often fascinating tale." - Andrew Leonard 07/24/2005

Booklist
"[A] compulsively readable account of an exceptionally prescient, innovative, eccentric, and dedicated writer who has electrified the imaginations of generations of readers. More scholarly and literary biographies will follow, but none will have the vitality and intimacy of this living portrait." (starred review) - Donna Seaman 03/15/2005
