About this item

This volume consists of 10 essays on physical, cultural, and textual landscapes in the fiction of British writer J.G. Ballard (1930-2009). Literature and scholars from Europe and Singapore focus on The Atrocity Exhibition, but also examine The Drowned World, “The Terminal Beach,” “The Dead Astronaut,” Vermilion Sands, Crash, High-Rise, and Kingdom Come, in terms of landscapes of Ballard's youth in Shanghai, his writing life in suburban London, nuclear testing spaces, outer space, the beach, the motorway, the high-rise, and the shopping mall, as well as textual spaces like surrealist prose writing, collage, poetic romanticism, and invisible literature.
