Review: Ray Bradbury: The Last Interview

Ray Bradbury: The Last Interview, is a collection of interviews with the famous author before he died by his biographer, Sam Weller. It contains lots of little tidbits about the author that I did not previously know, like for instance his attendance of Comicon from its inception, that he wrote Fahrenheit 451 on rented type-writers at the UCLA library, and his involvement in several projects including architectural projects.

I also discovered several contradictory attitudes in the author which I was previously only slightly familiar with, and the book reminded me why knowing too much about authors whose work you enjoy isn't always a good idea.

At the $9.99 the price is very steep for a few short pages, but it's possible to check it out from the library and read it quickly.
