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
