About this title:
Synopsis:
The Terminal Beach is one of Ballard's most brilliant collections of short stories, ranging from the title story's disturbing picture of an abandoned atomic testing island in the Pacific to the shocking Oedipal fantasy of 'The Gioconda of the Twilight Noon'. At the heart of the stories lies the bitter paradox that the extraordinary creative power of man's imagination is matched only by his reckless instinct for destruction. 'One of the few genuine surrealists this country has produced, the possessor of a terrifying and exhilarating imagination - and a national treasure' Guardian

About the Author:
SALES POINTS Reissued in a new cover style alongside The Voices of Time J G Ballard is widely recognised as one of the finest writers of the 20th century His novel 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. 'Ballard's ferocious intelligence, his wit, his cantankerousness, and in particular his extraordinary rendering of the perverse pleasures of today's paranoia, make him one of the grand magicians of modern fiction' Brian Aldiss 'It is utterly appropriate to number Ballard among the true contemporary radicals of the imagination ... His best work is simply a new way of looking at the world' New Musical Express
