Inhaltsangabe: Green Town, Illinois stands at the very heart of Ray Bradbury Country. A lovingly re-imagined version of the author's native Waukegan, it has served as the setting for such modern classics as Dandelion Wine, Something Wicked This Way Comes, and Farewell Summer . In Summer Morning, Summer Night, Bradbury returns to this signature locale with a generous new collection of twenty-seven stories and vignettes, seventeen of which have never been published before. Together, they illuminate some of Green Town's previously hidden corners, and reaffirm Bradbury's position as the undisputed master of a unique fictional universe.
In the course of this volume, readers will encounter a gallery of characters brought vividly to life by that indefinable Bradbury magic. Included among them are a pair of elderly sisters whose love potion carries an unexpected consequence; a lonely teacher who discovers love on Green Town's nocturnal streets; a ten-year-old girl who literally unearths the intended victim of a vicious crime; and an aging man who recreates his past with the aid of a loaf of pumpernickel bread.
Each of these stories is engaging, evocative, and deeply felt. Each reflects the characteristic virtues that have always marked the best of Bradbury's fiction: optimism, unabashed nostalgia, openness to experience, and, most centrally, an abiding generosity of spirit. Summer Morning, Summer Night is both an unexpected gift and a treasure trove of Story. Its people, places, images, and events will linger in the reader's mind for many years to come.
From Booklist: In the hearts and minds of Bradbury enthusiasts, Green Town, Illinois, is as treasurable in fantastic literature as Baum?s Emerald City or Lewis? Narnia. Modeled after the author?s boyhood home of Waukegan, idyllic midwestern Green Town was the setting for Bradbury?s novels Dandelion Wine (1957) and Something Wicked This Way Comes (1962) as well as a handful of short stories. Until now most of those tales remained unpublished, an oversight Bradbury here rectifies in a welcome return to Green Town?s secret haunts and assorted eccentric citizens. A lonely teacher walks the town?s nocturnal streets pursuing an impossible romance with a night-shift rail-yard worker. After a broken engagement, a woman removes all her porch steps and barricades herself in an old Victorian house until her long-lost fiancé finally returns. Stories about love potions and aging couples trying to recapture their pasts mingle with shorter vignettes about passing circuses and the poignant fading of summer. Bradbury?s familiar poetic magic sings in every paragraph, reminding his readers why Green Town is worth visiting again and again. --Carl Hays
