Reviews

Pure, weird pleasure * Los Angeles Times *
Ballard's best and most characteristic work is in his early novels and short stories * New Statesman *
The most significant English novelist of the second half of the 20th century -- Will Self * Prospect *
A writer of enormous inventive powers, Ballard has, like Calvino, a remarkable gift for filing the empty, deprived spaces of modern life with invisible cities and the wonder worlds of the imagination -- Malcolm Bradbury * New York Times Book Review *
Ballard is a magician and a literary saboteur...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 *
