Issue: Fall 2003
Attorney and occasional correspondent for foreign and domestic newspapers, Bradbury was an atypical private whose education and aristocratic bearing gave him access to people and places far transcending what his rank and prestige would normally allow. This collection of letters to his family and reports to newspapers are written in an opinionated and sophisticated expository style. Editor Jennifer Cain Bohrnstedt provides an introduction and notes to the letters. The text includes a bibliography and index.
