Free Ray Bradbury, Black Francis, Sam Weller pdf


"A book that's feisty and that charges full-speed ahead, a book that practically levitates out of your hands as you turn the pages — there is that much energy in it, that much love for life and for books and for the people who make and read them."
—Julia Keller, The Chicago Tribune

"Sam Weller knows more about my life than I do."
—Ray Bradbury

“Weller…organized the interviews into sections such as ‘Childhood,’ ‘Hollywood,’ ‘Faith,’ ‘Politics,’ and ‘Sexuality.’ He offers an insightful introduction to each. (Another diehard fan, Black Francis of the Pixies, penned the forward). Overall, this is a book that brims over with inspiration and imagination found in the words of a 90-year-old man who’s never lost his passion.”
Chicago Sun-Times

“The book is impressively packed with illuminating details about the rise of such an iconic writer’s career. Casual admirer or super-fan, in Listen to the Echoes Ray Bradbury’s remarkable spirit will break your heart at least once.”
Nylon

“Weller is the quintessential interviewer who asks probing questions, then gets out of the way so that readers will have the feeling that Bradbury is talking to them. Bradbury comes across as honest, opinionated, passionate, and childlike. This book will please ardent Bradbury fans and those just looking into his work. Recommended.”
Library Journal

Praise for The Bradbury Chronicles
"For Bradbury fans, The Bradbury Chronicles is essential... [A]n engaging, often fascinating tale."
—The New York Times Book Review

"If The Bradbury Chronicles is exhaustive, it is never exhausting, and each anecdote adds light and color to the portrait [Weller] has painted of a writer of real accomplishment."
The Los Angeles Times Sam Weller is the author of The Bradbury Chronicles: The Life of Ray Bradbury, the first ever biography of Ray Bradbury, which received the prestigious Society of Midland Authors award for best biography in 2005, and was short-listed for the Bram Stoker award in the best nonfiction category. The book was a Los Angeles Times bestseller and was named a best book of the year by the Chicago Tribune, the Denver Rocky Mountain News, and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

All I knew about Ray Bradbury was that he wrote "Fahrenheit 451", "The Illustrated Man" and a lot of science fiction. What a pleasure it was then to meet an American original like Mark Twain in Sam Weller's superlative new book--"Listen To The Echoes". From sex and religion, to his life in Hollywood, to his thoughts on architecture and literature, Bradbury speaks with the wisdom of a philosopher, the wonder of a child and a hilarious, sometimes brutal honesty that for all its bite is never vicious. It's truly wonderful to listen to Bradbury's unique voice as he muses on everything from Renaissance art to Garbo, his thoughts about an afterlife and his great joy in living despite having suffered a debilitating stroke and losing his wife of fifty-six years. Bradbury seems also to have met everyone from Gorbachev and Norman Mailer to Marlene Dietrich, Sinatra, Walt Disney and Steven Spielberg, and gives his own inimitable perspective on them all. Mr. Weller knows his subject and does a beautiful job capturing this complex and fascinating writer--as he puts it "unfiltered and unplugged". I plan to reread "Listen To The Echoes" for its insights, its humor and as a superb portrait of an inspired and inspiring artist and humanist.

I loved these interviews! Ray Bradbury is a fascinating person, and the book is really inspiring, since he has such great enthusiasm about people and things. He's opinionated, too, which adds to the fun. Among the topics covered are Bradbury's childhood, movies, comics, famous friends, religion, politics, and science fiction.

Here's a small sampling of Bradbury's opinions: 1) The Harry Potter books are wonderful, and he gave them to all of his grandchildren; he likens them to his own "Something Wicked This Way Comes"; 2) He loves to get toys for Christmas; 3) Reagan was one of the great presidents of the 20th century; 4) He's in favor of gay marriage ("Love is love. All I want is for people to be happy"); 5) Bush I should have extended the Gulf War to Baghdad and overthrown Saddam Hussein; then Bush II wouldn't have inherited the problem; 6) Edgar Rice Burroughs "is probably the most influential writer in the entire history of the world"; he inspired a whole generation of kids, causing them to go out into the world and become special; he inspired lots of writers, scientists and technologists.

It's a wonderful book, provocative, informative and entertaining, and a great supplement to author Sam Weller's excellent biography "The Bradbury Chronicles."

Listen to the Echoes is a joyful book. In Sam Weller's candid interviews, Ray Bradbury celebrates the gift that is life itself: not always easy but endlessly interesting. Unlike pop psych philosophers or preachers of bumper sticker religious platitudes, Bradbury gives us specifics about what makes waking up each morning the start of another adventure.

Sam Weller obviously admires Bradbury, artist and man, but doesn't limit himself to warm, fuzzy, and obvious queries: Ray Bradbury reveals himself as lifelong fanboy, with his movie star autograph collection, and sometimes curmudgeonly political conservative--but these insights add to the reality of the man: No clay feet, just the standard fleshly kind in Florsheims that walk the down to Earth.

Along with Stephen King's On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft, this book is required reading for all those engaged in (the art and craft of) writing. It's also for those who believe in Life.
