Known for Science Fiction, Ray Bradbury also wrote the semi-autobiographical Dandelion Wine in which he distilled the joys of summer. The summer evoked is 1928, but it could as easily be ‘38, ‘48, or ‘58. The stories celebrate “the old as well as young, smart and dumb combined, sheer joy as well as complete terror written by a boy who once hung upside down in trees.” (Introduction 1975 edition. Avon Books)
