9780586089965: The Drought (Paladin Books)
Críticas:

'A strange and rather wonderful book full of haunting landscapes, phantasmagoria and disaster that clangs on the mind. An impressive novel at any level. Its obscurities and surrealist flourishes only heighten the dreamlike atmosphere' Guardian 'The experience Mr Ballard offers is mystical...it is weird; it is grotesque; it is magnificently Gothic' Sunday Times 'By arranging a world drought to kill off the majority of people, he brings his characters to a state of timeless, arid obsession with what is left of water and of their own selves...a sensitive, baroque study in decadence' Daily Telegraph 'Ballard paints staggering imaginary landscapes. A very impressive book by a deeply serious writer, the originality and power of whose vision can be felt' Times Literary Supplement

Críticas:

‘The terrifying thing about Ballard is his logic; is this science fiction or history written ahead of its time?’ Len Deighton

‘More intelligent and more strange than almost any other novel’ Brian Aldiss

‘At a time when we live with constant warnings of a world destroyed by global warming, it is easy to forget that writers such as Ballard were exploring the fear of global blight nearly forty years ago’ The Times

‘It is weird; it is grotesque; it is magnificently Gothic’ Sunday Times

‘A strange and wonderful book’ Guardian

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 194 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. With a new introduction by M. John Harrison and a striking new cover design from the artist Stanley Donwood, this acclaimed cult novel sees human existence threatened by devastating climate change. Water. Man s most precious commodity is a luxury of the past. Radioactive waste from years of industrial dumping has caused the sea to form a protective skin strong enough to devastate the Earth it once sustained. And while the remorseless sun beats down on the dying land, civilization itself begins to crack. Violence erupts and insanity reigns as the remnants of mankind struggle for survival in a worldwide desert of despair. Remarkable for its prescience and the originality of its vision, The Drought is a work of major importance from the early career of one of Britain s most acclaimed novelists. This edition is part of a new commemorative series of Ballard s works, featuring introductions from a number of his admirers (including Ned Beauman, Ali Smith, Neil Gaiman and Martin Amis) and brand-new cover designs.
