John Harrison and a striking new cover design from the artist Stanley Donwood, this acclaimed cult novel sees human existence threatened by devastating climate change.Water.

About the Author :

J.G. Ballard was born in 1930 in Shanghai, where his father was a businessman. After internment in a civilian prison camp, he and his family returned to England in 1946. He published his first novel, The Drowned World, in 1961. His 1984 bestseller Empire of the Sun won the Guardian Fiction Prize and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. It was later filmed by Steven Spielberg. His memoir Miracles of Life was published in 2008. J.G. Ballard died in 2009.

Review :

`The terrifying thing about Ballard is his logic; is this science fiction or history written ahead of its time?' Len Deighton`More intelligent and more strange than almost any other novel' Brian Aldiss`At a time when we live with constant warnings of a world destroyed by global warming, it is easy to forget that writers such as Ballard were exploring the fear of global blight nearly forty years ago' The Times`It is weird; it is grotesque; it is magnificently Gothic' Sunday Times`A strange and wonderful book' Guardian
