Set in a fictional small town in Illinois, 1928, Bradbury gives an autobiographical recollection of his own childhood summer days. Rich and lyrical, this book moved me to frantically write all my own memories of summer and childhood. I can't say enough good about the masterful writing in Dandelion Wine. If you like words this is a feast! Not a huge fan of Bradbury's (or anyone's) science fiction. But this is something very special.
