Title: FAHRENHEIT 451
Author: BRADBURY RAY
Format: HARD COVER
Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of this hauntingly prophetic classic novel, a special edition with a new introduction by Ray Bradbury.

Guy Montag is a fireman. His job is to burn books, which are forbidden, being the source of all discord and unhappiness. Even so, Montag is unhappy; there is discord in his marriage. Are books hidden in his house?

The Mechanical Hound of the Fire Department, armed with a lethal hypodermic, escorted by helicopters, is ready to track down those dissidents who defy society to preserve and read books.

The classic novel of a post-literate future, FAHRENHEIT 451 stands alongside Orwell's 1984 and Huxley's BRAVE NEW WORLD as a prophetic account of Western civilization's enslavement by the media, drugs and conformity. Bradbury's powerful and poetic prose combines with uncanny insight into the potential of technology to creat a novel which, fifty years on from first publication, still has the power to dazzle and shock.
