Contemporary British Novelists MUP

  • The only full-length book on Ballard to have been written in the past seven years
  • Offers a critically up-to-date, comprehensive analysis of his entire oeuvre
  • Ballard is one of the most significant contemporary novelists, but has received little critical work
  • This should become the key source text
  • Ranges over Ballard's whole career, from his early science fiction work to the recent novels, and his timely reflections on the role of violence in our social life
  • Argues that Ballard's far-reaching analyses of our times make him an indispensable social commentator, who has made an enormous contribution to contemporary literature
