SHORTCUTS TO GENIUS! Will inspire and enlighten! Ballard is a sardonic prophet who has never compromised his noir-poetic vision--the William Burroughs of England. This book of quotes is a perfect "commuter" book for our fast-paced society, and speaks to our lack of time--the 21st century's Portable Shakespeare!
J.G. Ballard: QUOTES Available November 2004
BOOK DESCRIPTION: A pocket-size compendium of culturally clairvoyant quotations culled from impossible-to-find articles, interviews, and fiction. Grouped by topic for easy and enjoyable navigation, it includes commentary on the future, the past, 9-11, death of reality, celebrity, writing, art, music, cities, suburbs, relationships, death and violence, and more. This compilation of prophetic insights is not only comprehensive in content but also stunning visually, featuring more than 50 photographs by lens luminaries Ana Barrado, Charles Gatewood, and others. Quotes edited by V. Vale.
