Synopsis

A special limited edition of J. G. Ballard's cult, post-modern and shocking novel









I knew that Vaughan could never really die in a car-crash, but would in some way be re-born through those twisted radiator grilles and cascading windshield glass.









The Collector's Edition







A former TV scientist turned nightmare angel of the expressway, Robert Vaughan gathers around him a collection of alienated crash victims. Among them is James Ballard, our narrator, who is drawn into a series of erotic atrocities, each more sinister than the last. Vaughan craves the ultimate crash - a head on collision of blood, semen, engine coolant and iconic celebrity.





Alongside Ballard's cult postmodern novel, this special edition, edited by Chris Beckett, includes never-before-seen reproductions of Ballard's annotated manuscript pages, essays, stories and material that shine a new light on this modern masterpiece.
