Heard about a Book...

Reading about Listen To The Echoes; The Ray Bradbury Interviews by Sam Weller reminded me of some of the great science fiction I read by Bradbury when I was young. This book about Bradbury shows his "ferocious love of life" according to one reviewer.

From the book's website:

Ray Bradbury, the poetic and visionary author of such classics as Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles and The Illustrated Man, is one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. From Mikhail Gorbachev to Alfred Hitchcock to David Bowie, Bradbury’s sway on contemporary culture is towering. Acclaimed biographer and Bradbury scholar Sam Weller has spent more than a decade interviewing the author; the fascinating conversations that emerge cast a high-definition portrait of a creative genius and futurist who longs for yesterday. Listen to the Echoes: The Ray Bradbury Interviews is the definitive collection of interviews with an American icon.
