Votre note
Based on J G Ballard's own childhood, Empire of the Sun is the extraordinary account of a boy's life in Japanese-occupied wartime Shanghai - a mesmerising and hypnotically compelling novel of war, of starvation and survival, of internment camps and death marches, which blends searing honesty with an almost hallucinatory vision of a world thrown utterly out of joint. Shortlisted for the Booker Prize and the winner of both the Guardian Fiction Prize and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, Empire of the Sun was later filmed by Steven Spielberg.
Rooted as it is in the author's own disturbing experience of war in our time, it is one of a handful of novels by which the twentieth century will not only be remembered but judged.

Biographie de J-G Ballard

J. G. Ballard was born in 1930 in Shanghai, China, where his father was a businessman. Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, Ballard and his family were placed in a civilian prison camp. They returned to England in 1946. After two years at Cambridge, where he read medicine, Ballard worked as a copywriter and Covent Garden porter before going to Canada with the RAF. He started writing short stories in the late 1950s, while working on a scientific journal.
His first major novel, The Drowned World, was published in 1962. His acclaimed novels include The Crystal World, The Atrocity Exhibition, Crash (filmed by David Cronenberg), High-Rise, The Unlimited Dream Company, The Kindness of Women (the sequel to Empire of the Sun), Cocaine Nights, Super-Cannes and, most recently, Millennium People.
