Sybawrite

Ballard

I only just found out.

That passage in “The Gum Thief” where the protagonist rages about the literati never really owning up to their favourite authors struck a chord. It’s always someone obscure, or French, or both.

The three best books on the twentieth century malaise, the condition we’re in as the century turns, the ones I wish I could had written…

“Girlfriend in a coma” Douglas Coupland
“Platform” Michel Houellebecq
“Millennium People” J G Ballard

Rest in dystopia.
