About the Author

J. G. Ballard was born in Shanghai in 1930 and lived in England from 1946 until his death in London in 2009. He is the author of nineteen novels, including Empire of the Sun, The Drought, and Crash, with many of them made into major films.

Reviews

What infuses Cocaine Nights is a curious blend of deadpan detachment and almost comical self-consciousness. --The New York Times Book Review

A bristling thriller pastiche. --Kirkus Reviews

A bit of metaphysical terrorism as carefully planned and executed as [a] fatal blaze. --Washington Post

[Ballard's] bleak picture of trouble in paradise has the ring of truth. --Publishers Weekly

Cocaine Nights comes at you like a conventional 'all-is-not-as-it-seems' whodunit. But all is not as it seems. Under the light crust of gentility lies a familiar Ballard landscape of sociopathic violence, transgressive sex and the inevitable pornographic web that lies in between . . . There is nothing quite like a J. G. Ballard novel. --The Guardian
