The Novels of J. G. Ballard
Jsterling03 on 04/26/2009
|British novelist and short story writer J. G. Ballard left this earth on April 19, 2009 at the age of 78. While closely associated to the movement that has become known as the "New Wave of Science Fiction", Ballard and his semi-autobiographical works are much more than that; painting bleak man-made landscapes of an all too real dystopian society at odds with itself and the technology it created.|
The influence of Ballard's works in modern culture is without question, and nearly unparalleled. While difficult to portray on film, Canadian auteur David Cronenberg did a wonderful job with his controversial production of Ballard's daring novel, "Crash" (1996). If you are of an adventurous nature, I highly recommend taking the film (and the novel) out for a spin!
