In 1953, the brilliant but terrifying titan of cinema John Huston summons the young writer Ray Bradbury to Ireland. The apprehensive scribe's quest is to capture on paper the fiercest of all literary beasts -- Moby Dick -- in the form of a workable screenplay so the great director can begin filming.

But from the moment he sets foot on Irish soil, the author embarks on an unexpected odyssey. Meet congenial IRA terrorists, tippling men of the cloth impish playwrights, and the boyos at Heeber Finn's pub. In a land where myth is reality, poetry is plentiful, and life's misfortunes are always cause for celebration, Green Shadows, White Whale is the grandest tour of Ireland you'll ever experience -- with the irrepressible Ray Bradbury as your enthusiastic guide.

Ray Bradbury is a modern cultural treasure. His disarming simplicity of style underlies a towering body of work unmatched in metaphorical power by any other American storyteller. And here are thirty-two of his most famous tales—-prime examples of the poignant and mysterious poetry that Bradbury uniquely uncovers in the depths of the human soul, the otherwordly portraits that spring from the canvas of one of the century's great men of imagination. From a lonely coastal lighthouse to a sixty-million-year-old safari, from the pouring rain of Venus to the ominous silence of a murder scene, Ray Bradbury is our sure-handed guide not only to surprising and outrageous manifestations of the future but also to the wonders of the present that we could never have imagined on our own.

The thirty-two stories included in The Golden Apples of the Sun are "The Fog Horn," "The April Witch," "The Wilderness," "The Fruit at the Bottom of the Bowl," "The Flying Machine," "The Murderer," "The Golden Kite, The Silver Wind," "I See You Never," "Embroidery," "The Big Black and White Game," "The Great Wide World Over There," "Powerhouse," "En La Noche," "Sun and Shadow," "The Meadow," "The Garbage Collector," "The Great Fire," "The Golden Apples of the Sun," "R Is for Rocket," "The End of the Beginning," "The Rocket," "The Rocket Man," "A Sound of Thunder," "The Long Rain," "The Exiles," "Here There Be Tygers," "The Strawberry Window," "The Dragon," "Frost and Fire," "Uncle Einar," "The Time Machine," and "The Sound of Summer Running."
