Inhaltsangabe: 'The world, without rain, is drying up. Rivers are a trickle and we see the shrivelling of the species far from its sources and headed lemming-like for the sea. Time has burst its dams and seeps inside the race-structure with bizarre results A strange and rather wonderful book full of haunting landscapes, phantasmagoria and disaster that clangs on the mind. An impressive novel at any level. Its obscurities and surrealist flourishes only heighten the dreamlike atmosphere.' Guardian
Über den Autor: J. G. Ballard has been at the forefront of modern British fiction writing for over three decades. He was born in 1930 in Shanghai, China, where his father was a businessman. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, he and his family were placed in a civilian prison camp. They returned to England in 1946. His acclaimed 1984 novel Empire of the Sun, based on his experiences in the prison camp, won the Guardian Fiction Prize and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. His most recent publications include the highly acclaimed Cocaine Nights, a Sunday Times bestseller in hardback and paperback, which was shortlisted for the 1996 Whitbread Novel Award.
