Reviews

"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."--Minneapolis Star Tribune

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