en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 10 Sep 2005
From the author of "Crash" and "Empire of the Sun", this novel is an evocation of a flooded, tropical London of the future and a foray into the workings of the unconscious mind. The central character Kerans moves to a strange acceptance of and assimilation by this lushly transformed world, vanishing into a final epiphany of heat and light.

Notă biografică

J. G. Ballard was born in 1930 in Shanghai. After internment in a civilian prison camp, his family returned to England in 1946. His 1984 bestseller 'Empire of the Sun' won the Guardian Fiction Prize and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. His controversial novel 'Crash' was made into a film by David Cronenberg. His autobiography 'Miracles of Life' was published in 2008, and a collection of interviews with the author, 'Extreme Metaphors', will be published in 2012. J.G. Ballard passed away in 2009.


'Extraordinarily prescient...Ballard is a prophet' Philip Pullman, Guardian 'One of the brightest stars in post-war fiction. This tale of strange and terrible adventure in a world of steaming jungles has an oppressive power reminiscent of Conrad' Kingsley Amis 'Powerful and beautifully clear...Ballard's potent symbols of beauty and dismay inundate the reader's mind' Brian Aldiss

Praise for J.G.Ballard: 'One of the brightest stars in post-war fiction' Kingsley Amis 'As a writer he can simply take the breath away' Independent 'He is one of the few genuine surrealists this country has produced, the possessor of a terrifying and exhilarating imagination - and a national treasure' Guardian
