Farewell Summer Limited
$325.00 $297.79


by Ray Bradbury.

1 of 250 Signed Limited Editions.

Ray Bradbury's dazzling sequel to Dandelion Wine.

This edition is printed in two colors, bound in a premium cloth, and housed in a custom slipcase (numbered edition).

Limited: 250 numbered copies, signed by the author, housed in a custom slipcase, with black and white endsheets

OVERVIEW: The Limited Editions also include an exclusive section containing several never before published short stories/fragments related to the novel. Instead of a strict reproduction of Mr. Bradbury's typescript from 50 years ago, we've chosen to re-set the material, not in polished form, but in typescript, to highlight readability while retaining the notion that these are not 'completed' pieces.

From Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
“This poignant, wise but slight “extension” of the indefatigable Bradbury's semiautobiographical Dandelion Wine picks up the story of 12-year-old Douglas Spaulding in October of 1928, when the warmth of summer still clings to Green Town, Ill. As in his episodic 1957 novel, Bradbury evokes the rhythms of a long-gone smalltown America with short, swift chapters that build to a lyrical meditation on aging and death… Bradbury's mature but fresh return to his beloved early writing conveys a depth of feeling.”

From Booklist:
“Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine has aged remarkably well, losing none of its nostalgic charm during the 49 years since its first printing. Writing sequels is something entirely new in Bradbury's long career of perpetual creativity, and so his return to Green Town, Illinois, and the escapades of the author's boyhood alter ego, Douglas Spaulding, is surprising as well as welcome. Whereas Dandelion Wine takes the form of a series of interconnected tales, Farewell Summer tells one unbroken story set during an autumnal heat wave in the year Douglas turns 14… A touching meditation on memories, aging, and the endless cycle of birth and death, and a fitting capstone, perhaps, to a brilliant career.”

 2006 Sub. Press Signed Hardcover and housed in a cloth slipcase. For complete archival protection the DJ is  sealed in an acid-free protective book cover upon publication, and then sealed in plastic for final protection.
