Book I'd Like to be Buried With

Matt Riley recently interveiwed me and asked me what book I'd like to be buried with. I thought long and hard and determined that it would have to be Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine. The full text can be found at the following link. These are always fun exercises in mental gymnastics. I'm sure that my answer won't be yours. But isn't it interesting to see how people's minds work and why they think the way that they do?

  1. I've heard such great things about this book, but have never actually picked it up. FARENHEIT 451 is still one of my favorite novels of all time so I will definitely give this a look.

    I also wanted to give you a quick thanks for posting on the Mulholland Books website. So glad that you found resonance in Joe's article about his 'writing workplace'! Looking forward to seeing you around the website more often.

    Thanks again,
