Petit extrait :"
SF: I was wondering if you could tell me how the book came into conception.

RB: Well, about five years ago, Sam went to The Herald Tribune in Chicago and said, “Ray Bradbury’s eightieth birthday is coming up, and I would like to do an article on him.” So The Herald Tribune gave permission and he called me and he flew out to the coast and he did the article. And it was splendid. So, having met me that one time, he came on two more occasions, and he finally said to me, “Has anyone ever done a biography on you?” I said, “No.” And he said, “Why not?” I said, “Well I don’t believe I’m ready to have a biography written about me. It’s the bookend of a life. I’m not ready to say that I need bookends.” But he kept insisting, and I begin to see the more I met him that he was a twin. Like an honorary son. So finally at the end of the summer I gave him permission, and he began to fly out to the coast every three weeks for the next four years. It was a heck of a lot of flying and research. So, the final book is a triumph. He’s done a fantastic job."
