Ray Bradbury was interviewed recently about how Fahrenheit 451 came to be—sharing the stage with Hugh Hefner, whose Playboy serialized the classic novel—and shared that it was first radio and then TV that made him realize he'd have to write a book about book burning.

Along the way, Bradbury also explained his writing technique by saying, "I throw up in the morning and I clean up at noon" (which we hope was only a metaphor) and "I'm a pomegranate" (which we're sure was only a metaphor).
