stunning silence.

I'll salvage this comment (and the semi-smug post) with a request that you please, please, please read one book by Ballard (for it seems you have read none), and post a book review here.

Thanks for your comment. Can you recommend one? I promise to read it. Thank you.

Precisely, too many people just jump in to condemn writers like Wilde, Nobokov, Burroughs without reading a single page! Read "High Rise". Now I wonder why middle brow Americans are getting such good names all over the world and even their fellow Americans are showing disdain towards their fellow citizens.
