I just bought this story (I hope I got the right one!) on Amazon.com under the title "A Story of Love: And Other Non-Science Fiction Stories by Ray Bradbury"

Hi Kira7, and welcome to the board! You've found a book I'd never seen before - I would be very interested to know what the contents are. When you receive it, would you be so kind as to come back and post a list of the titles it contains?

I see from the picture on Amazon that it says "Lire en Anglais" - so this appears to be a French book, but with English text.

yes, definately! and thank you! I plan on sending it to an old teacher I had when I was 15; we had a similiar tale, and in fact when it first came out I was about to move to Los Angeles so it was eerily familiar and what was weirder was the drawer accompanying the story: it looked like an exact drawing of my teacher!! I had written Mr Bradbury about it, asking him if it was a true story (because I assumed it was about he, himself) and he said yes it was! I should have asked him if the drawing was an actual drawing from his recollection but I didn't- I do plan on writing him again, altho it's been years (omg I was 15 and now am 43! My teacher is 52!) to ask him about the drawing because it is so startling. I do believe it is a case of reincarnation: 100%!!
