Description

Halloween Night, 1954. A young, film-obsessed scriptwriter has just been hired at one of the great studios. An anonymous investigation leads from the giant Maximus Films backlot to an eerie graveyard separated from the studio by a single wall. There he makes a terrifying discovery that thrusts him into a maelstrom of intrigue and mystery--and into the dizzy exhilaration of the movie industry at the height of its glittering power.

Review quote

"Bradbury soars with a poetic ebulliance that is dazzling . . . [He] pulls out all the stops in this nostalgic magnum opus and gives us an all-American fireworks show of richly intermingled myths and memories."--" Playboy""For anyone who grew up on Bradbury's stories, this . . . is like camping out with Santa Claus . . . Bradbury has convincingly conjured a lost world, 'lovelier than tonight or all the nights to come'."--" Newsweek"

In a career spanning more than seventy years, Ray Bradbury inspired generations of readers to dream, think, and create. A prolific author of hundreds of short stories and close to fifty books, as well as numerous poems, essays, operas, plays, and screenplays, Bradbury was one of the most celebrated writers of our time. His groundbreaking works include Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, Dandelion Wine, and Something Wicked This Way Comes. An Emmy Award winner for his teleplay The Halloween Tree and an Academy Award nominee, he was the recipient of the 2000 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, the 2004 National Medal of Arts, and the 2007 Pulitzer Prize Special Citation, among many honors.
