"Visionary of both style and substance . . . the literary equivalent of Salvador Dali or Max Ernst."--"The Washington Post Book World" "Ballard's novels are complex, obsessive, frequently poetic, and always disquieting chronicles of nature rebelling against humans, of the survival of barbarism in a world of mechanical efficiency, of ethropy, anomie, breakdown, ruin . . . The blasted landscapes that his characters inhabit are both external settings and states of mind."--Luc Sante" "About the Author:
