9781609983475: Millennium People

The explosive J. G. Ballard renaissance, which began with the 2009 publication of The Complete Stories of J. G. Ballard, now continues with his first novel to be published in America in a full decade. Millennium People tells the story of David Markham, a psychologist who is searching for the truth behind a bomb that exploded on a Heathrow baggage carousel, killing his ex-wife. Infiltrating a shadowy protest group responsible for her death, David finds himself succumbing to the charismatic charms of the groups leader, who hopes to foment a violent rebellion against the government by his fanatical adherents, the spiritually and financially impoverished members of Britains white middle class. It reveals a shockingly plausible and extremely unsettling vision of society in collapse.

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

About the Author:

J. G. Ballard (1930–2009) was an English novelist, short story writer, and prominent member of the New Wave movement in science fiction. His best-known books are Crash, adapted into a film by David Cronenberg, and the semi-autobiographical Empire of the Sun, made into a film by Steven Spielberg, based on Ballard's boyhood in the International Settlement and internment by the Japanese Imperial Army during the Second World War.
