J.G.Ballard's magic

Re/Search has produced a brilliant overview of ballard's early works,up to 1984, with in-depth interviews,snatches of books,exhibitions articles,pictures,collages,etc.It's ideal if you want to get the theoretical angle on the wise man from Leicester/Singapore,without having to suffer the usual abstract,condescending ,academic jargon. Fhe format is perfect- like a catalogue ,but slimmer.


This is a creative and interesting explication of an outstanding author's life and work.
