Fahrenheit 451 is one of my absolute favorite novels of all time, and I’ve been wanting to write about it for a while now. The genesis behind the book is an interesting one, because it doesn’t conform to the usual process: author sits down, writes the story. It started as one story, merged with another, got published, got expanded, had other things added onto it, and then onto bookshelves. It’s an important work, and I’ve found that its backstory makes it even more so.
Go read The Ignition Point of Ray Bradbury over on Kirkus Reviews.
