The words may have been said in many times in many ways, but to most the phrase is associated with the next to last scene in the movie Casablanca where Rick sends Ilsa away with the words: We'll Always Have Paris. They have the memory of the euphoric phase of their love and no one can take that away from them. From this set of never-before-published short stories by Ray Bradbury, the reader will be able to take away new insights into the human condition as told by a master. Although one story features a trip to Mars, these are literary tales describing human life on Earth. For some stories Bradbury employs magical realism, but not science fiction regardless of how it is defined. From official release/information:
From back of book: Following the success of his recent collection, Ray Bradbury has once again pulled together a stellar group of stories sure to delight readers of all ages. We'll Always Have Paris is a treasure trove of Bradbury gems -- eerie and strange, nostalgic and bittersweet, searching and speculative--all of which ahve never before been published.
