Description: A chilling novel that pays twisted homage to Defoe's `Robinson Crusoe'. Newly reissued with an introduction from Neil Gaiman.
Synopsis: A chilling novel that pays twisted homage to Defoe's `Robinson Crusoe'. Newly reissued with an introduction from Neil Gaiman.Robert Maitland, a 35 year-old architect, is driving home from his London offices when a blow-out sends his speeding Jaguar hurtling out of control. Smashing through a temporary barrier he finds himself, dazed and disorientated, on a traffic island below three converging motorways. But when he tries to climb the embankment or flag-down a passing car for help it proves impossible - and he finds himself imprisoned on the concrete island. Maitland must survive using only what he can find in his crashed car.As in all Ballard's best work `Concrete Island' provides an unnerving study of our modern lives and world. With his alienating, `Ballardian' view of normal events, this is a unique novel from one of the twentieth century's finest writers.This edition is part of a new commemorative series of Ballard's works, featuring introductions from a number of his admirers (including Zadie Smith, Adam Philips, Adam Thirlwell and Robert Macfarlane) and brand-new cover designs from the artist Stanley Donwood.
