The Comforts of Madness

Interview with JG Ballard:

But while things remain the same chez Ballard, the world outside has reinvented itself. Now, the landscape of greater London “lacks all the classic features of what used to be urban – the town hall, church, vicarage, public library. All these are largely gone.” This fascinates Ballard. “Most English writers are not interested in change but in the social novel. That demands a static backdrop. I’m intensely interested in change – probably as a matter of self-preservation. What the hell is going to happen next?”
