The Kindness of Women

Author(s): J. G. Ballard

Hardback fiction | Literary Fiction

A must-listen for any J. G. Ballard fan, this "capstone to a magnificent career" (San Francisco Chronicle) is the essential sequel to Empire of the Sun. Published in 1991, this semiautobiographical novel is a daring masterpiece from "one of the most important and intelligent voices in contemporary fiction" (Susan Sontag). "Rueful the way Primo Levi's work was" (New York Times Book Review), the novel follows 15-year-old Jim Graham as he leaves the ruins of postwar Shanghai, only to find that he cannot escape his own obsession with death.
