Super-Cannes, Paperback

Super-Cannes Paperback



A high-tech business park on the Mediterranean is the setting for a most disturbing crime in this reissue featuring a new introduction by Ali Smith.

A disturbing mystery awaits Paul and Jane Sinclair when they arrive in Eden-Olympia, a high-tech business park in the hills above Cannes.

Jane is to work as a doctor for those who live in this ultra-modern workers' paradise.

But what caused her predecessor to go on a shooting spree that made headlines around the world?

As Paul investigates, he begins to uncover a thriving subculture of crime that is spiralling out of control.

Both novel of ideas and complex thriller, 'Super-Cannes' is an extraordinary satire from the author of 'Empire of the Sun', 'The Drowned World' and 'Crash'.

This edition is part of a new commemorative series of Ballard's works, featuring introductions from a number of his admirers (including Robert Macfarlane, Hari Kunzru, James Lever and Zadie Smith) and brand-new cover designs from the artist Stanley Donwood.
