Green Shadows, White Whale

Notes: Bradbury's novelization of his experience as a young writer working on the Moby-Dick screenplay for John Houston in 1953.

Illustrated by Edward Sorrel.

Edition + Condition: First edition (stated). A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. With a seldom-seen full-page inscription to a fan: "To Tom .... This almost-true story of my life and times a long time ago—40 years—in Eire. Dearly remembered by one who rode horses, drank whiskey, & felled "Moby Dick" two falls out of three! Ray Bradbury 2/22/94." Laid in is a note from the recipient with a short handwritten response from Bradbury.

The "third fall" referenced in the inscription may refer to John Houston's successful effort to have the screenplay credited to both him and Bradbury, a move Bradbury protested.

Publication: New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1992.
