9780006551614: Millennium People

Violent rebellion comes to London,s middle classes in the extraordinary new novel from the author of Cocaine Nights and Super-Cannes. When a bomb goes explodes at Heathrow, it looks like just another random act of violence to psychologist David Markham. But when he discovers that his ex-wife is among the victims he is compelled to further investigate the mysterious and shocking circumstances surrounding her death. Acting on police suspicions he immerses himself in the strange world of London,s fringe protest movements. A quiet rebellion against middle-class normality is taking place. However as civic responsibility and the trappings of consumer society are jettisoned the movement grows steadily more bellicose and Markham is increasingly lured by the idea of revolution and terror.

Product Description:

Violent rebellion comes to London's middle classes. As he searches for the truth behind the Heathrow bomb that killed his ex-wife, psychologist David Markham infiltrates a shadowy protest group based in the comfortable Chelsea Marina. Led by a charismatic doctor, it aims to rouse the docile middle classes and to free them from the burdens of civic responsibility. Soon Markham is swept up in a campaign that spirals out of control - as the cornerstones of middle England become targets and growing panic grips the capital. This edition is part of a new commemorative series of Ballard's works, featuring introductions from a number of his admirers (including Martin Amis, Ali Smith, Hari Kunzru and China Mieville) and brand-new cover designs.

From the Back Cover:

“Ballard is simply a master story writer.”?Jonathan Lethem, New York Times Book Review

Compelling, disturbing, and eerily prophetic, Millennium People affirms J.G. Ballard’s legacy as, in the words of China Miéville, “probably the most original English writer of the last century.”

“Ballard is a British Philip K. Dick, heir to Conrad and H.G. Wells, in whose stories the present, taken to extremes, anticipates the future. In fact, the only complaint to be made of this bruisingly smart novel is that it has taken eight years for it to appear in the U.S.”? Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Terrifying and strangely haunting. . . . A riveting work from a writer of rare imaginative largesse, a bearer of bad tidings, unforgettably told.”? Daily Telegraph

“Reading [ Millennium People] is like having all the planks that underpin your life removed one by one and being forced to confront the brutality and emptiness that lie below.”?John Preston, The Scotsman

Millennium People will compete with the best of contemporary British fiction.”?Ian Thomson, The Independent
