9780006551607: Super-Cannes

A high-tech business park on the Mediterranean is the setting for a most disturbing crime in this extraordinary bestseller from the author of Crash and Cocaine Nights. After over three decades at the forefront of modern fiction, J.G. Ballard reached a new generation of readers with the bestselling thriller Cocaine Nights. In Super-Cannes, he delves into another closed community, where it is claimed that 'work is the new leisure'. A disturbing mystery awaits Paul and Jane Sinclair when they arrive in Eden-Olympia, a high-tech business park in the hills above Cannes. Jane is to work as a doctor for those who live in this ultra-modern workers' paradise. But what caused her predecessor to go on a shooting spree that made headlines around the world? As Paul investigates, he begins to uncover a thriving subculture of crime that is spiralling out of control. Both novel of ideas and complex thriller, Super-Cannes is an extraordinary satire from the author of Empire of the Sun, Drowned World and Crash. Extreme Metaphors, a collection of interviews with Ballard, will be published in 2012.

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. His 2000 novel Super-Cannes won the regional Commonwealth Writers' Best Book prize. J.G. Ballard died in 2009.
