あらすじ・解説

From the recipient of the National Book Foundation's 2000 Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters comes "[Bradbury's] most entertaining book in a distinguished 50-year career" (Time).

In 1953, a young Ray Bradbury is summoned to Ireland by the brilliant but terrifying titan of cinema, John Huston. His mission: capture on paper the fiercest of all literary beasts - Moby Dick. But from the moment he sets foot on Irish soil, the author embarks on an unexpected odyssey.

As Bradbury works and wrangles with the renowned director to craft a workable screenplay so filming can begin, he also develops a love affair with the beautiful, mysterious land of Ireland and its inhabitants. Here is the story of what happens when the visions of three creative geniuses - Bradbury, Huston, and Melville - collide, set against the beguiling backdrop of the Emerald Isle.

beautifully descriptive language

One amazing turn of phrase after another. While enjoying most of the stories, it's Bradbury's use of language that kept me enthralled.

First-hand account by Ray Bradbury

This is more of a string of short story experiences by Ray Bradbury in Ireland while writing a screenplay for Moby Dick. A journal by Ray Bradbury is worthwhile to hear in itself; but some of the stuff about the director, John Huston got on my nerves. Overall, I enjoyed some of the stories better than others. The performance by the reader Macleod Andrews was outstanding. I enjoyed his Irish accents he used for the characters in the stories.
