    On a day in April, just after three o'clock in the afternoon, Robert Maitland's car crashes over the concrete parapet of a high-speed highway onto the island below, where he is injured and, finally, trapped. What begins as an almost ludicrous predicament in CONCRETE ISLAND soon turns into horror as Maitland - a wickedly modern Robinson Crusoe - realizes that, despite evidence of other inhabitants, this doomed terrain has become a mirror of his own mind. Seeking the dark outer rim of the everyday, J.G. Ballard weaves private catastrophe into an intensely specular allegory. 176p.

    J.G. Ballard’s first novel to be published in America in nearly a decade, is a brilliant political satire, filled with stunning psychological insights, twisted humor, and unrelenting suspense. When a bomb goes off at Heathrow Airport it looks like another random act of violence to psychologist David Markham. But then he discovers that his ex-wife Laura is among the victims. Following a police lead that suggests the explosion was not the work of a foreign terrorist, but instead a shadowy and ruthless group based in the comfortable Thameside estate of Chelsea Marina, Markham begins to infiltrate London’s fringe protest movement. Led by Richard Gould, a charismatic pediatrician turned cult leader, the clandestine group aims to rouse London’s squeezed middle classes to anger and violence. Succumbing to the irresistible charms of Gould, Markham abandons his original investigation to give his unyielding support to the uprising, becoming an active participant in the process. 287p.
