Description

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.

display_description 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.Track List for The Golden Apples of the Sun: Disc 1"The Fog Horn"-Track 1"The April Witch"-Track 8"The Wilderness"-Track 16"The Fruit at the Bottom of the Bowl"-Track 23Disc 2"The Flying Machine"-Track 6"The Murderer"-Track 10"The Golden Kite, the Silver Wind"-Track 17"I See You Never"-Track 21"Embroidery"-Track 24Disc 3"The Big Black and White Game"-Track 1"The Great Wide World Over There"-Track 9"Powerhouse"-Track 18Disc 4"En La Noche"-Track 1"Sun and Shadow"-Track 4"The Meadow"-Track 10"The Garbage Collector"-Track 22Disc 5"The Great Fire"-Track 1"The Golden Apples of the Sun"-Track 6"R Is for Rocket"-Track 12"The End of the Beginning"-Track 24Disc 6"The Rocket"-Track 1"The Rocket Man"-Track 9"A Sound of Thunder"-Track 18Disc 7"The Long Rain"-Track 3"The Exiles"-Track 13"Here There Be Tygers"-Track 24Disc 8"The Strawberry Window"-Track 10"The Dragon"-Track 18"Frost and Fire"-Track 20Disc 10"Uncle Einar"-Track 7"The Time Machine"-Track 14"The Sound of Summer Running"-Track 21
