Promotional Information

This fast-paced narrative by the author of CRASH and EMPIRE OF THE SUN is a stunning evocation of a flooded, tropical London of the near future and a foray into the workings of the unconscious mind. / J.G. Ballard has been at the forefront of modern British fiction for over three decades, achieving remarkable critical acclaim and commercial success. / His work ranges from the hugely popular EMPIRE OF THE SUN, based on his experiences in a Japanese POW camp, via experimental novels such as CRASH, to unnerving visions of utopian worlds gone wrong, such as COCAINE NIGHTS. THE DROWNED WORLD was his first major published novel. / His critically acclaimed recent novels, COCAINE NIGHTS and SUPER-CANNES, have won J.G. Ballard a whole new readership and taken him back to the top of bestseller lists.

About the Author

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 also made into an equally controversial film by David Cronenberg. His most recent novels include the Sunday Times bestsellers Cocaine Nights and Super-Cannes.


Praise for J.G.Ballard: 'There are those (and I am among them) who would back Ballard as Britain's number one living novelist' John Sutherland, Sunday Times 'One of the brightest stars in post-war fiction' Kingsley Amis
