Concrete island

Concrete island
Title: Concrete island
Author:
Annotation:A 35-year-old architect is driving home from his London office when his car swerves and crashes onto a traffic island lying below three converging motorways. Uninjured, he climbs the embankment to seek help, but no one will stop for him and he is trapped on the island, where he remains.

'Visionary of both style and substance & the literary equivalent of Salvador DalМ or Max Ernst.'-The Washington Post Book World

'Ballard's novels are complex, obsessive, frequently poetic, and always disquieting chronicles of nature rebelling against humans, of the survival of barbarism in a world of mechanical efficiency, of ethropy, anomie, breakdown, ruin & The blasted landscapes that his characters inhabit are both external settings and states of mind.'-Luc Sante
