The Independent explores the Ray Bradbury you might not know

The Independent culture critic David Barnett suggests that many people know Ray Bradbury only as the author of science fiction like Fahrenheit 451 or The Martian Chronicles. To commemorate Bradbury’s 100th birthday, Barnett takes a closer look at the author whose broad acclaim from readers and other authors often preceded recognition from the literary establishment.  Bolstering his own insight through interviews with authors Neil Gaiman and Joanne Harris, Barnett paints a picture of an “exceptionally good stylist” whose boundless curiosity, enthusiasm for life, and expansive memory took form in a broad range of genres that have the power to continually surprise his readers and reveal enduring truths about the world.
