Promotional Information

A high-tech business park on the Mediterranean coast is the setting for a crime of the most disturbing kind in this extraordinary bestseller from one of Britain's most important living novelists. / A Sunday Times top-ten bestseller in hardback, this novel will be given a stunning new cover treatment and reissued as part of an ongoing update of the JG Ballard series style.

About the Author

J.G. Ballard was born in 1930 in Shanghai, where his father was a businessman. After internment in a civilian prison camp, he and his family returned to England in 1946. His 1984 bestseller Empire of the Sun won the Guardian Fiction Prize and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. It was later filmed by Steven Spielberg. His controversial novel Crash has recently been made into an equally controversial film by David Cronenberg.

Reviews

'Sublime! an elegant, elaborate trap of a novel, which reads as a companion piece to Cocaine Nights but takes ideas from that novel and runs further. The first essential novel of the 21st century.' Independent 'Possibly his greatest book. Super-Cannes is both a novel of ideas and a compelling thriller that will keep you turning the pages to the shocking denouement. Only Ballard could have produced it.' Sunday Express 'In this tautly paced thriller he brilliantly details how man's darker side derails a vast experiment in living, and shows the dangers of a near-future in which going mad is the only way of staying sane.' Daily Mail 'Vintage Ballard, a gripping blend of stylised thriller and fantastic imaginings.' Guardian 'Truly superb! the best book he has written.' Daily Express
