Reviews

"Each page, and this is a page-turner, might have the mind's knees knocking, the mind's flesh horripitating... Super-Cannes confirms J. G. Ballard's substantial place in contemporary fiction." --The Washington Times

"Ballard's prose is seductive and pellucid and his stories compelling....Spiked with...gnomic dialogue and black, black humor, this book is also a captivating Chandlerian mystery." --The Washington Post Book World

"Ballard's fictional world [is] like no one else's." --The Atlantic Monthly

"Ballard is our poet laureate of Modernism's dead zones.... [Super-Cannes] achieves a brilliant, thorny ambiguity--the kind that lodges splinterlike in your imagination, and refuses to come loose." --LA Weekly

"Rarely has his vision been so total, his creation so complete. Super-Cannes is as good as anything that Ballard has done before, and considering the work which that bland statement encompasses, it's the highest possible praise." --Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

"One of his finest." --San Francisco Chronicle
