Fahrenheit 451 author Ray Bradbury dead at 91Ray Bradbury, the science fiction-fantasy master who transformed his childhood dreams and Cold War fears into telepathic Martians, lovesick sea monsters, and, in uncanny detail, the high-tech, book-burning future of Fahrenheit 451, has died. He was 91.“Everything I’ve done is a surprise, a wonderful surprise,” Bradbury said during his National Book Award medal for lifetime achievement acceptance speech in. “I sometimes get up at night when I can’t sleep and walk down into my library and open one of my books and read a paragraph and say, ’My God, did I write that? Did I write that?’, because it’s still a surprise.” (Photo: The Associated Press)

“The true anarchist,” writes Glenn O’Brien in the opening pages of his new book, How To Be a Man (Rizzoli), “must see good manners are the inevitable substitute for laws.” This guidebook from the GQ advice columnist and former Interview editor—there are sections devoted to being a guest, being a host, wearing a suit, seducing a woman, and buying furniture—is a surprisingly political primer on transcending the current vogue for vulgarity simply by being a gentleman.

De Boya is a formerly idealistic, struggling journalist who has taken a job in Bolivia in the services of fictional hedge-fund behemoth Calloway Group. There he discovers his aptitude for the not-so-subtle arts of dishonesty and betrayal, eventually becoming what O’Brien, in his chapter on insults, defines as one who would sell out his friends and lovers if it was convenient: a scumbag.
