Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury

Dandelion Wine

Dandelion Wine takes us back to the summer of 1928, into the fictional town of Green Town, IL a pseudonym for Waukegan, IL of Bradbury’s childhood. Our guide is Douglas Spaulding a 12 year old who discovers he’s alive. A single summer is written in loving memory as we witness a young man’s discovery of the joys and terrors in his small town. There were some macabre elements, and an unusual number of characters die for such a small town, but the supernatural elements rang true. They were experiences I could relate to, as easily as the new tennis shoes. The prose brought chills of memories while I read the book. I’m putting ‘Dandelion Wine‘ on a very short list of books I would like to read again.
