Shelf Awareness reviews Becoming Ray Bradbury

Cover for Eller: Becoming Ray Bradbury. Click for larger imageToday’s Shelf Awareness newsletter included a review of Jonathan Eller’s new book Becoming Ray Bradbury.

“If, as Malcolm Gladwell says, one needs to apply oneself for 10,000 hours to become an expert, let’s call this a look at the 10,000 hours (give or take) that gave Bradbury the ability and the confidence to write Fahrenheit 451. It’s a fantastic story, and one of the few frustrating things about it is that Eller ends it just as Bradbury, flush with success, is recruited by John Huston to write a screenplay for Moby Dick. Is it presumptous to ask for a sequel?”
