Praise for this book

"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
