Death Is a Lonely Business

Death Is a Lonely Business - Ray Bradbury hooray for writers who write one book completely different from the rest of their ouevre. Haruki Murakami's 'Hard-boiled Wonderland,' a 1990s 'semiotics/akademickant' inflected surreal piece; Ray Bradbury's 'Death is a Lonely Business." no more martians, no more talking squids in outer-space; a spare, lyrical work inflected with a venice, california perpetually wrapped in fog and populated only by twisted figures including the unforgettable constance rattigan, ex-silent film star, filthy rich silver-haired limousine owner, general sexual deviant, and so on.

should be read even by non-SF readers!
