Excellent one-volume biography of Bradbury. Weller knew Bradbury personally and had Bradbury’s cooperation in writing the book, so there is a lot of autobiography in it, through a series of interviews. It’s terrific, one of the best biographies of any kind I have read. Bradbury was not just a fine writer, he was an interesting man, who remembered his childhood in detail, and who had examined his own life. If you want to know what Bradbury the man was like, this is the book. Even if you haven’t read a lot of Bradbury, you might enjoy this just as a great example of a fine biography.

For a deeper, literary biography of Bradbury, see the works of Jonathan Eller. But Weller’s book is an excellent starting point.
