Now and Forever

By Ray Bradbury

Rating: 4 stars

I love Bradbury’s writing, and this collection of two novellas is as much of a joy as anything else of his that I’ve read. The lyrical writing, the wordplay, the desperate bittersweet nature of the stories, one being about a town in middle America whose inhabitants never grow old, and the other being a retelling of Moby Dick with the titular whale replaced by a comet and the crew chasing it are now that of a spaceship, all combine in a sweet spot for me. Glorious stuff.
