Publisher's Summary

From the recipient of the National Book Foundation's 2000 Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters comes "[Bradbury's] most entertaining book in a distinguished 50-year career" (Time).

In 1953, a young Ray Bradbury is summoned to Ireland by the brilliant but terrifying titan of cinema, John Huston. His mission: capture on paper the fiercest of all literary beasts - Moby Dick. But from the moment he sets foot on Irish soil, the author embarks on an unexpected odyssey.

As Bradbury works and wrangles with the renowned director to craft a workable screenplay so filming can begin, he also develops a love affair with the beautiful, mysterious land of Ireland and its inhabitants. Here is the story of what happens when the visions of three creative geniuses - Bradbury, Huston, and Melville - collide, set against the beguiling backdrop of the Emerald Isle.
