Cover for Eller: Becoming Ray Bradbury. Click for larger imageRon Hogan, the editor of Beatrice, recently reviewed Jonathan Eller’s Becoming Ray Bradbury for Shelf Awareness.  This week Ron recommends the book to his Beatrice readership.

“I had a great time with Eller’s biography; he’s extremely rigorous about tracking the details of Bradbury’s literary development without getting bogged down in an academic prose style. So my interest never flagged, and though I knew the rough outcome—I read Fahrenheit 451 in junior high, too—I wanted to hear all the details. And I really want the sequel that Eller ought to write, since he ends the story just as Bradbury is about to head off to Ireland to write a screenplay of Moby DIck for John Huston.”
