Ray Bradburys moving recollection of a vanished golden era remains one of his most enchanting novels. Dandelion Wine stands out in the Bradbury literary canon as the authors most deeply personal work, a semiautobiographical recollection of a magical smalltown summer in 1928. Twelveyearold Douglas Spaulding knows Green Town, Illinois, is as vast and deep as the whole wide world that lies beyond the city limits. It is a pair of brandnew tennis shoes, the first harvest of dandelions for Grandfathers renowned intoxicant, the distant clang of the trolleys bell on a hazy afternoon. It is yesteryear and tomorrow blended into an unforgettable always. But as young Douglas is about to discover, summer can be more than the repetition of established rituals whose mystical power holds time at bay. It can be a best friend moving away, a human time machine that can transport you back to the Civil War, or a sideshow automaton able to glimpse the bittersweet future. Come and savor Ray Bradburys priceless distillation of all that is eternal about boyhood and summer.
