Now a major film: J. G. Ballard?s compelling and unnerving tale of what happens when life in a luxury apartment building descends into chaos.
?Later, as he sat on his balcony eating the dog, Dr Robert Laing reflected on the unusual events that had taken place within this huge apartment building during the previous three months.?
Within the walls of an elegant forty-storey high-rise, the affluent tenants are hell-bent on an orgy of destruction. Cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on ?enemy? floors, and the once-luxurious amenities become an arena for mayhem.
In this visionary novel, the veneer of civilised society is stripped away as the inhabitants of the high-rise, driven by primal urges, create a dystopian world ruled by intimidation and violence. And no one wants it to stop ?
"Harsh and ingenious! High Rise is an intense and vivid bestiary, which lingers unsettlingly in the mind." ?Martin Amis, New StatesmanWhen a class war erupts inside a luxurious apartment block, modern elevators become violent battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on ?enemy? floors. In this visionary tale, human society slips into violent reverse as once-peaceful residents, driven by primal urges, re-create a world ruled by the laws of the jungle.
