Author: J G Ballard; Simon Sellars; Daniel Finbarr John O'Hara

Database:WorldCat
Summary:
A startling and at times unsettlingly prescient collection of J.G. Ballard's greatest interviews. J.G. Ballard was a literary giant. His novels were unique and surprising. To the journalists and admirers who sought him out, Ballard was the 'seer of Shepperton'; his home the vantage from which he observed the rising suburban tide, part of a changing society captured and second-guessed so plausibly in his fiction.
