Description

The second in a two volume collection of short stories by the acclaimed author of `Empire of the Sun', `Crash' and `Super-Cannes'. The new edition is introduced by Adam Thirwell. `Will quite possibly be remembered as the most original English writer of the last century' Martin Amis For over four decades, J. G. Ballard was one of Britain's most celebrated and original novelists. However, during his long career he was also a prolific writer of short stories, a form in which many argue he laid his firmest claim to greatness. This, the second book in a two-volume collection, completes an unparalleled review of Ballard's career. Following the original order of publication, its stories - many of them embryos for later novels - survey the full imaginative range of one of the twentieth century's greatest writers. This edition is part of a new commemorative series of Ballard's works, featuring introductions from a number of his admirers (including Ali Smith, Iain Sinclair, Martin Amis and Ned Beauman) and brand-new cover designs from the artist Stanley Donwood.

Author Biography

J.G. Ballard was born in 1930 in Shanghai, where his father was a businessman. After internment in a civilian prison camp, he and 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, and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. It was later filmed by Steven Spielberg. His controversial novel Crash was made into an equally controversial film by David Cronenberg.
