Card covers, first thus (this is the trade softcover after the limited edition). 28 × 21cm, 127pp + ads. Signed directly to the title page by J G Ballard. Easily one of the 20th century's most visionary writers, J. G. Ballard still lives far ahead of his time. Called his "prophetic masterpiece" by many, The Atrocity Exhibition practically lies outside of any literary tradition. Part science fiction, part eerie historical fiction, part pornography, its characters adhere to no rules of linearity or stability. This reissued edition features an introduction by William S. Burroughs, extensive text commentary by Ballard, and four additional stories. Of specific interest are the illustrations by underground cartoonist and professional medical illustrator Phoebe Gloeckner. Her ultrarealistic images of eroticism and destruction add an important dimension to Ballard's text. Condition: This copy is in very good condition, with just a little light wear to the edges.

First published in 1970 and widely regarded as a prophetic masterpiece, this is a groundbreaking experimental novel by the acclaimed author of Crash and Super-Cannes, who has supplied explanatory notes for this new edition.
The irrational, all-pervading violence of the modern world is the subject of this extraordinary tour de force. The central character?s dreams are haunted by images of John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe, dead astronauts and car-crash victims as he traverses the screaming wastes of nervous breakdown. Seeking his sanity, he casts himself in a number of roles: H-bomber pilot, presidential assassin, crash victim, psychopath. Finally, through the black, perverse magic of violence he transcends his psychic turmoils to find the key to a bizarre new sexuality.
As an e-book, The Atrocity Exhibition takes on a new identity. Hyperlinked throughout, the reader navigates in news ways throught Ballard?s extraordinary vision. Linking the text with the newly added notes from the author, the reader can access Ballard?s later thoughts on the book and his reasons for writing it.
Sinopsis: The Atrocity Exhibition is J.G. Ballard's most complex, disturbing work, with fabulous photos by Ana Barrado and artwork by Phoebe Gloeckner.
