Description
Ray Bradbury discusses his book, “A Graveyard for Lunatics." He explains that the book is his second mystery novel in which he features a fictionalized version of himself as the unnamed narrator. The book is set in 1950s Hollywood where the narrator works as a writer at a major film studio. The back of the studio adjoins a cemetery and the plot of the tale unfolds between these two settings. To write this book, Bradbury explains that he drew on his own experiences writing screenplays and his childhood growing up in Hollywood.
