Dandelion Wine review Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB Al timeless summer in the life of a twelve year old boy named Douglas Spaulding remembered forever by the incomparable Ray BradburyWoven into the novel are the following short stories Illumination Dandelion Wine Summer in the Air Season of Sitting The Happiness Machin. My introduction to the fiction of Ray Bradbury is Dandelion Wine his much loved ode to small towns summers and strangeness as only a twelve year old boy could discover it Published in 1957 the book is not a short story collection per se but of the twenty seven vignettes ten had been published before Season of Disbelief and The Window appeared in Collier s in 1950 A Story About Love in McCall s in 1951 The Lawns of Summer in Nation s Business in 1952 The Swan in Cosmopolitan and The Magical Kitchen in Everywoman s Magazine in 1954 The Trolley in Good Housekeeping in 1955 etc Bradbury s ability to enrapture me is divided between his marvelous curiosities tinkerers time travel ghosts witchcraft tarot cards Death and his prose which is jeweled and beautifully captures the glow of a boy s summer When it comes to a strong narrative or characters I could relate to the book left me wanting with most of the chapters or vignettes feeling like what would fill three or four paragraphs of a book as it gears up or takes a break from its central story If there are central characters they would be Douglas Spaulding a twelve year old boy and his ten year old brother Tom who experience the summer of 1928 in their hometown of Green Town IllinoisFrom Summer in the Air Well he felt sorry for boys who lived in California where they wore tennis shoes all year and never knew what it was to get winter off your feet peel off the iron leather shoes all full of snow and rain and run barefoot for a day and then lace on the first new tennis shoes of the season which was better than barefoot The magic was always in the new pair of shoes The magic might die by the first of September but now in late June there was still plenty of magic and shoes like these could jump you over trees and rivers and houses And if you wanted they could jump you over fences and sidewalks and dogsFrom The Swan It was the face of spring it was the face of summer it was the warmness of clover breath Pomegranate glowed in her lips and the noon sky in her eyes To touch her face was that always new experience of opening your window one December morning early and putting out your hand to the first white cool powdering of snow that had come silently with no announcement in the night And all of this this breath warmness and plum tenderness was held forever in one miracle of photographic chemistry which no clock winds could blow upon to change one hour or one second this fine first cool white snow would never melt but live a thousand summersThat was the photograph that was the way he knew herFrom The Tarot Witch Now Douglas knew why the arcade had drawn him so steadily this week and drew him still tonight For there was a world completely set in place predictable certain sure with its bright silver slots its terrible gorilla behind glass forever stabbed by waxen hero to save still waxen heroine and then the flipping waterfalling chitter of Keystone Kops on eternal photographic spindles set spiraling in darkness by Indian head pennies under naked bulb light The Kops forever in collision or near collision with train truck streetcar forever gone off piers in oceans which did not drown because there they rushed to collide again with train truck streetcar dive off old and beautifully familiar pier Worlds within worlds the penny peek shows which you cranked to repeat old rites and formulas There when you wished the Wright Brothers sailed sandy winds at Kittyhawk Teddy Roosevelt exposed his dazzling teeth San Francisco was built and burned burned and built as long as sweaty coins fed self satisfied machinesFrom Dinner at Dawn Whoever he was or whatever he was and no matter how different and crazy he seemed he was not crazy As he himself had often explained gently he had tired of business in Chicago many years before and looked around for a way to spend the rest of his life Couldn t stand churches though he appreciated their ideas and having a tendency toward preaching and decanting knowledge he bought the horse and the wagon and set out to spend the rest of his life seeing it that one part of town had a chance to pick over what the other part of town had cast off He looked upon himself as a kind of process like osmosis that made various cultures within the city limits available to one another He could not stand waste for he knew that one man s junk is another man s luxuryMy favorite vignette in Dandelion Wine is The Swan in which a young newspaper columnist named Bill Forrester impresses ninety five year old Miss Helen Loomis with the way he orders at an ice cream parlor An unlikely relationship blooms based on an old photo he finds that was taken in 1853 when Helen was twenty The way the old woman makes the younger man feel experienced and worldly and the way the younger man makes her feel energetic and young is told with mesmerizing prose by Bradbury His imagination and facility with language were tailor made for the magazine format and while the book struggles to gel I did enjoy reading itLength 78792 words The Black Velvet Gown remembered forever by the incomparable Ray BradburyWoven into the novel are the following short

Recently while moving bookcases books and furniture around I came across my copy of Dandelion Wine I had read it once years ago during my own personal Golden Age of Science Fiction ages 8 to 16 Now was a good time as any to revisit this novel Bradbury had been marked incorrectly in my mind as a sci fi writer on the same level as Heinlein or AsimovHe s not a hard core I Robot type of sci fi writer really More like a fantasy writer who touched on sci fi themesAnd he s in his own league There haven t been many authors like Bradbury heart of a poet imagination as great as any and a style that is both comfortable and familiar to the reader and yet is still uniueDandelion Wine is in my opinion the most poetical of anything I ve read by himIt s a pean to childhood joys and fears a story of the rite of passage from young child to a aware young man The town fictional of Green Town is a nod to Bradbury s real home town of Waukegan Illinois as seen from the eyes of Douglas Spaulding a 12 year old boy learning he is alive and mortal all in one summerThe novel is a series of short stories about the town and its people told mostly through Douglas or his younger brother Tom The Happiness Machine the Green Machine the old tarot witch friends moving away old ways coming to an end new ways being noticed and sometimes an old way being restored death and life all parade past on the pages of this luminous novel The Summer of 1928 is perfectly bottled and stored in the cellar just waiting for someone to come down open the cap and breathe deep of the golden light and let the feelings play around like incandescent beetles scattering in the bright summer sunIt is nostalgic without being maudlin or self pitying It is magical without being vulgar and ostentatious It bobs and weaves around the darkness and light of being alive of being young or old and always at the center of being humanBradbury is a master storyteller He is at the top of his game as he casts a spell about the rite of passage for Douglas as he progresses from a simple child to be a complex and self reflecting young manI really can t give this book enough praise It s delightful and thought provoking The

Dandelion Wine review Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB The summer of '28 was a vintage season for a growing boy A summer of green apple trees mowed lawns and new sneakers Of half burnt firecrackers of gathering dandelions of Grandma's belly busting dinner It was a summer of sorrows and marvels and gold fuzzed bees A magic. Some people turn sad awfully young No special reason it seems but they seem almost to be born that way They bruise easier tire faster cry uicker remember longer and as I say get sadder younger than anyone else in the world I know for I m one of them I re read this after a couple of decades and like most works I appreciate it better now than then A good night sleep or a ten minute bawl or a pint of chocolate ice cream or all three together is good medicine It could be that the 40 plus year old is better suited to understand the perspective of the mature writer than the 16 year old reader or it could just be that this great work speaks on many different levels The first thing you learn in life is you re a fool The last thing you learn in life is you re the same fool Fundamental Bradbury this work explores many of the themes that are representative of his canon coming of age spirituality imagination and the importance of remaining human amidst an ever increasingly dehumanizing world of technology Sandwich outdoors isn t a sandwich any Tastes different than indoors notice Got spice Tastes like mint and pinesap Does wonders for the appetite
