In 1953, the brilliant but terrifying titan of cinema John
Huston summons the young writer Ray Bradbury to Ireland. The
apprehensive scribe's quest is to capture on paper the fiercest of
all literary beasts -- Moby Dick -- in the form of a workable
screenplay so the great director can begin filming.
But from the moment he sets foot on Irish soil, the author
embarks on an unexpected odyssey. Meet congenial IRA terrorists,
tippling men of the cloth impish playwrights, and the boyos at
Heeber Finn's pub. In a land where myth is reality, poetry is
plentiful, and life's misfortunes are always cause for celebration,
Green Shadows, White Whale is the grandest tour of Ireland
you'll ever experience -- with the irrepressible Ray Bradbury as
your enthusiastic guide.
