Read full description of the books:
La exhibición de atrocidades, publicada en 1970, anticipa de algún modo la trilogía urbana de J.G. Ballard: Crash (1973), La isla de cemento (1974), y Rascacielos (1975). El más obsesivo de estos libros es sin duda La exhibición de atrocidades. Los distintos episodios, "novelas condensadas" los llamó el autor, se suceden como variables de los posibles terrores post-nucleares, con un protagonista que va cambiando de nombre y de papel (médico, piloto de bombardero, asesino de presidentes, victima de un accidente de coche, psicópata, etc). La pesadilla y la realidad se superponen, y la historia es vista con distintos lentes: la crudeza de un noticiario filmado en un matadero mental, o el desapego preciso y clínico de un informe científico.

Read information about the authorJames Graham "J. G." Ballard (15 November 1930 – 19 April 2009) was an English novelist, short story writer, and essayist. Ballard came to be associated with the New Wave of science fiction early in his career with apocalyptic (or post-apocalyptic) novels such as The Drowned World (1962), The Burning World (1964), and The Crystal World (1966). In the late 1960s and early 1970s Ballard focused on an eclectic variety of short stories (or "condensed novels") such as The Atrocity Exhibition (1970), which drew closer comparison with the work of postmodernist writers such as William S. Burroughs. In 1973 the highly controversial novel Crash was published, a story about symphorophilia and car crash fetishism; the protagonist becomes sexually aroused by staging and participating in real car crashes. The story was later adapted into a film of the same name by David Cronenberg.
While many of Ballard's stories are thematically and narratively unusual, he is perhaps best known for his relatively conventional war novel, Empire of the Sun (1984), a semi-autobiographical account of a young boy's experiences in Shanghai during the Second Sino-Japanese War as it came to be occupied by the Japanese Imperial Army. Described as "The best British novel about the Second World War" by The Guardian, the story was adapted into a 1987 film by Steven Spielberg.
The literary distinctiveness of Ballard's work has given rise to the adjective "Ballardian", defined by the Collins English Dictionary as "resembling or suggestive of the conditions described in J. G. Ballard's novels and stories, especially dystopian modernity, bleak man-made landscapes and the psychological effects of technological, social or environmental developments." The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography entry describes Ballard's work as being occupied with "eros, thanatos, mass media and emergent technologies".
