J.G. Ballard always brings out the maiden aunt in me as I cannot help but feel that he is a deeply disgusting man, in fact a completely grubby pervert. Despite my personal dislike for his characters and worldview I cannot help but admire the way his books highlight developments in their embryonic stage and his talent as a writer. In this book he describes the new working poor as they lose their bearings in a world that is moving past them at a rapid clip and exploits them thoroughly.
