The Illustrated Man

Ray Bradbury brings wonders alive. For this peerless American storyteller, the most bewitching force in the universe is human nature.

Provocative and powerful, The Illustrated Man is a kaleidoscopic blending of magic, imagination, and truth—as exhilarating as interplanetary travel, as maddening as a walk in a million-year rain, and as comforting as simple, familiar rituals on the last night of the world.
