When I was ten, the harbor I swam in was declared a Superfund site. ~ $65 (cloth) The Stories of Ray Bradbury And my city has benefitted from his generosity. The truth is that I wasn’t sure I trusted Waukegan’s worship of Bradbury, a man who, it seemed to me, had abandoned us for California, for wealth, and for fame and who, in his nostalgia-soaked adulthood, wrote books that made growing up in Waukegan sound like Dorothy’s trip to Oz. In any case, the Lonely One isn’t really a representation of Waukegan’s dark side, lurking in that shadowy ravine. During the next few years I wrote a series of Martian pensées, Shakespearian ―asides,‖ wandering thoughts, long night visions, predawn half-dreams. But the ravine is also home in the novel to the serial killer, “The Lonely One.” This figure, Bradbury says in his introduction, was real; Bradbury explains he “moved around my town at night” and was never caught. I said the only thing there was to say, “Great festival! Would we be more willing to address the ways we’ve failed the people there if Bradbury had held up a mirror to us instead of shot us in soft focus like a Hollywood film?

The truth is that I wasn’t sure I trusted Waukegan’s worship of Bradbury, a man who, it seemed to me, had abandoned us for California, for wealth, and for fame and who, in his nostalgia-soaked adulthood, wrote books that made growing up in Waukegan sound like Dorothy’s trip to Oz. In any case, the Lonely One isn’t really a representation of Waukegan’s dark side, lurking in that shadowy ravine. During the next few years I wrote a series of Martian pensées, Shakespearian ―asides,‖ wandering thoughts, long night visions, predawn half-dreams. But the ravine is also home in the novel to the serial killer, “The Lonely One.” This figure, Bradbury says in his introduction, was real; Bradbury explains he “moved around my town at night” and was never caught.

In ''Colonel Stonesteel's Genuine Home-made Truly Egyptian Mummy,'' a local eccentric and a bored young boy decide to shake up their dull little town (''the most common mean ordinary plain old bore of a town in the eternal history of the Roman, German, Russian, English, American empires'') by planting a phony mummy in a farmer's field - with predictably bizarre results. There are a handful of Bradbury's poems here, an essay and a short story ("The Messiah").

Although it purports to give us a Martian's view of a human being (as it happens, a beautiful young woman with whom he falls in love), it lacks the sort of specific details that might make his story seem authentic and relies instead on obvious oppositions of physical characteristics: she's white, he's brown; she's voluptuous, he's thin; etc. ~ $65 (cloth) The Stories of Ray Bradbury The excerpts we read in my high school English classes seemed nostalgia-soaked, idyllic, and I was baffled by the gap between the Waukegan I saw around me and the one I thought Bradbury had grown up in.

Although his formal education ended there, he became a "student of life," selling newspapers on L.A. street corners from 1938 to 1942, spending his nights in the public library and his days at the typewriter. It’s Bradbury, intoning gravely over shots of the artefacts: People ask, Where do you get your ideas?

The refusal to use computers or the internet, for example, and his advice that writers “should do very little reading in [their] own field” suggest someone who prefers to live in a world like the one depicted in the opening credits of Ray Bradbury Theater: full of sentimental personal objects and blocking out any beams of light from the outside. Like his previous work, this latest collection of stories attests to Mr. Bradbury's busy, magpie habits. �&����{�u��m���W[��U���.�n�_ɧn�ݮ|���ݷ����b{�^ug_�8t�^o��ׯI�[email protected]�i�e��VFt��R$V���l�����Ȫ���ۭ�)' M�k�8\�'"���DƔE�?ಳ�%��������w�n}��3��i�����ڭ� �kU�Pc��T3E��_������,��2��l|���0�-��g����;�K��!���b�K=�'�uG��5�,WG���Ŕ�+ Part of that darkness is the terra incognita of the natural world, the “wilderness on the edge of town.” (This wilderness no longer exists, either; Waukegan is firmly an exurb, a far stop on the northern line out of Chicago through the suburbs, straggling into the station after you’ve passed through the leafy, wealthy towns where Chicago athletes buy mansions and send their kids to school.)

This is Bradbury all over, always reaching after Big Ideas, after archetypes and morals, using Green Town as a ladder to climb to the bigger truths written across the entire world, and even beyond. h�bbd``b`[email protected]�`�@� �)�X�n�ށF1 D� b���,F����6� �"
