Green Shadows, White Whale: A Novel of Ray Bradbury’s Adventures Making Moby Dick with John Huston in Ireland

Paperback

Price: $14.99

Overview

In 1953, the brilliant but terrifying titan of cinema John Huston summons the young writer Ray Bradbury to Ireland. The apprehensive scribe’s quest is to capture on paper the fiercest of all literary beasts — Moby Dick — in the form of a workable screenplay so the great director can begin filming.

But from the moment he sets foot on Irish soil, the author embarks on an unexpected odyssey. Meet congenial IRA terrorists, tippling men of the cloth impish playwrights, and the boyos at Heeber Finn’s pub. In a land where myth is reality, poetry is plentiful, and life’s misfortunes are always cause for celebration, Green Shadows, White Whale is the grandest tour of Ireland you’ll ever experience — with the irrepressible Ray Bradbury as your enthusiastic guide.
