About this title

Synopsis:

In 1957, Ray Bradbury, already famous for stories of fantasy and science fiction delighted and surprised readers with the lyrical realism of DANDELION WINE.

The place is Green Town, Illinois, the year 1928. Douglas Spaulding is 12. The people parading through his life that summer belong to an America of trolley cars and electric runabouts and of dandelion wine bottled in the summer for the winter's sipping. It is during this summer when the magic of childhood just begins to be perceived by the child growing up.

"One of the warmest, most refreshing, most appealing evocations of a bygone day that I have ever read or ever hope to read." (Sunday Tribune, Chicago)

Review:

World-renowned fantasist Ray Bradbury has on several occasions stepped outside the arenas of horror, fantasy, and science fiction. An unabashed romantic, his first novel in 1957 was basically a love letter to his childhood. (For those who want to undertake an even more evocative look at the dark side of youth, five years later the author would write the chilling classic Something Wicked This Way Comes.)

Dandelion Wine takes us into the summer of 1928, and to all the wondrous and magical events in the life of a 12-year-old Midwestern boy named Douglas Spaulding. This tender, openly affectionate story of a young man's voyage of discovery is certainly more mainstream than exotic. No walking dead or spaceships to Mars here. Yet those who wish to experience the unique magic of early Bradbury as a prose stylist should find Dandelion Wine most refreshing. --Stanley Wiater
