When a prestigious writer, an egocentric film director and an infamous great white whale all converge on the Emerald Isle, the result is more priceless than a pot of gold. And no mere leprechaun could conjure up such irresistible situations and memorable characters; the magic comes from the pen of the master himself-Ray Bradbury. In 1953, a young writer is summoned to Ireland by the brilliant but terrifying titan of cinema, John Huston. The apprehensive scribe"s quest is to capture on paper the fiercest of all literary beasts-Moby Dick-in the form of a workable screenplay so the great director can begin filming. But from the moment he sets foot on Irish soil, the author embarks on an unexpected odyssey more enthralling than anything he had dared imagine: he gradually penetrates the shrouded mysteries of Ireland and its utterly beguiling residents. Meet congenial IRA terrorists, tippling men of the cloth, impish playwrights, and the boyos at Heeber Finn"s pub. In a land where myth is reality, poetry is plentiful, and life"s misfortunes are always cause for celebration, Green Shadows, White Whale is the grandest tour of Ireland you"ll ever experience-with the irrepressible Ray Bradbury as your enthusiastic guide.
