“To speak of Fahrenheit , you have to speak of all my other books. Everything has been an accident. Everything has been unplanned. Everything has been a passion, a madness, a great love. Each of my books is a special love….
“But thank God I behaved unconsciously and didn’t try to intellectualize my career — left or right, black or white, up or down, male or female — none of that junk. Just me, the typewriter and the future.”
— Ray Bradbury, from an interview on the Fahrenheit 451 movie DVD
