Today’s top book news item:
Ray Bradbury’s Los Angeles house is up for sale. The bright yellow three-bedroom where the author of Fahrenheit 451 lived with his wife costs $1.495 million. (Click here for a peek inside.)
As The Los Angeles Times' Carolyn Kellogg notes, Bradbury wrote about physical legacies in Fahrenheit 451: "Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you’re there."
