    In this hallucinatory novel, the car provides the hellish tableau in which Vaughan, a 'TV scientist' turned 'nightmare angel of the highways,' experiments with erotic atrocities among auto crash victims, each more sinister than the last. James Ballard, his friend and fellow obsessive, tells the story of this twisted visionary as he careens rapidly toward his own demise in an intentionally orchestrated car crash with Elizabeth Taylor. Made into a major motion picture directed by David Conenberg, starring James Spader and Holly Hunter. 224p.

    This extraordinary novel is a comic apocalypse, a roller-coaster ride through hell, and a safari to the strangest people of the strangest planet: ourselves. Its genius is apparent in every line – paranoid, visionary, delirious – as bizarre and nightmarish scenes flash by, like glimpses of some exotic and decadent city. Only later do we realize that this strange city is the one we all inhabit in our walking lives. NAKED LUNCH is both the addict’s fix, the rush of pure sensation through the brain, and also the stark and unsentimental truth about ourselves, our self-delusions and deceits, served with a dressing of the spiciest humor. After all, it is the world, as Burroughs knows it, we are feasting both in and on. 289p

    Best known for his novels, such as Empire of the Sun and Crash, Ballard rose to fame as the 'ideal chronicler of disturbed modernity...like Calvino...filling the empty deprived spaces of modern life with the invisible cities and the wonder world of imagination.' Equally brilliant were his devastatingly original short stories, which span nearly fifty years and reveal an unparalleled prescience so unqiue that a new word - Ballardian - had to be invented. The ninety-eight pulse-quickening surreal specimens presented in this landmark publication demonstrate Ballard's fierce imaginative energies in full-throttle apprehension of the dehumanizing horizons he so abhorred.
