Dandelion Wine, however, is a full-on nostalgia trip. Can our memories of childhood be the greatest fantasy of all? When Colonel Freeleigh dies, Doug says that all the characters in his stories died with him. Musician Laurie Anderson says, "Technology is the campfire around which we tell our stories." How might today's technology have helped. Dandelion Wine is a quick read, with straightforward and understandable language. Plus, some of the super-short stories that make up this book are only half a page long. You can tell non-reader.

Mar 25,  · And of course, people made delicious dandelion wine. The great American author Ray Bradbury even titled one of his most famous novels Dandelion Wine. In the book, Bradbury described dandelion wine as a metaphor for all the joy and beauty of summer: “Dandelion wine. The words were summer on the tongue. The wine was summer caught and stoppered.”. Dandelion Wine is a nostalgic autobiographical fantasy in which the author forms a collage of isolated parts and melds them together. Since many chapters have isolated significance, some chapters have been summarized to give a broader idea of what the novel is about.

Dandelion wine, then, is a way of storing a season in a bottle, capturing your memories in the form of liquid gold—which is exactly what this book does, too. Except instead of liquid, Bradbury used paper. Dandelion Wine | The summer of '28 was a vintage season for a growing boy. A summer of green apple trees, mowed lawns, and new sneakers. Of half-burnt firecrackers, of gathering dandelions, of Grandma's belly-busting driftwood-dallas.com: Spectra Books.

And worry not: Dandelion Wine has plenty of bizarre machines, time travel, and even a fortune-telling wax dummy who may or may not secretly come to life and torment the guy who runs the local arcade.

But to simply call the book sci-fi, or even fantasy, is to seriously diminish its power as a philosophical reflection on aging and death.

Just the word evokes feelings of freedom and excitement when presented to the school aged child that still resides deep inside even the most jaded adult. That special season may be the reason that the word nostalgia was created.
