Dandelion Wine - Ray Bradbury Dandelion Wine is a collection of related vignettes that support and periodically return to one plot thread, or a short novel interrupted by many related vignettes. The entire book, including the vignettes but especially the main plot thread (twelve-year-old Douglas Spalding's coming of age in Green Town (based on Waukegan, Illinois) in summer 1925) is strikingly melancholy.

About the writing style: there may be better examples I haven't read, but among writers I've read, Ray Bradbury uses the technique of writing through word association most extensively; and although Dandelion Wine is only the third Bradbury work I've read, it is the best example of Bradbury's word association technique.
