Green Shadows, White Whale
In 1953, Ray Bradbury was summoned to Ireland to write the screenplay of Moby Dick for John Huston. That seven-month sojourn and his complicated relationship with Huston have been the inspiration for a number of Bradbury stories and form the basis of this wonderful story — the adventures of a green screenwriter coming to Ireland to confront a great director and a mythical beast. Into the bargain, he discovers the innate oddity and humour of the Irish, and their secrets.
The narrator is guided in his jaunt by the boys at Finn's Pub who inculcate him in the quaint ways of the country — and guided too by the power of his imagination as he wanders the streets of Dublin and wrestles with the great whale and the larger-than-life imaginative genius of Huston himself.
