"Ballard's ferocious intelligence, his wit, his cantankerousness, and in particular his extraordinary rendering of the perverse pleasures of today's paranoia, make him one of the grand magicians of modern fiction." - Brian Aldiss

"Searing...a brilliant fusion of history, autobiography and the kind of imaginative speculation that of which Ballard is an acknowledged master. An incredible literary achievement and almost intolerably moving." - Anthony Burgess

"An extraordinary achievement." - Angela Carter
