Summary
Within the concealing walls of an elegant forty-storey tower block, the affluent tenants are hell-bent on an orgy of destruction. Cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on ‘enemy’ floors and the once-luxurious amenities become an arena for riots and technological mayhem. In this visionary tale of urban disillusionment society slips into a violent reverse as the isolated inhabitants of the high-rise, driven by primal urges, create a dystopian world ruled by the laws of the jungle.‘Ballard’s finest novel... a triumph’ ―The Times ‘ingenious... ‘High-Rise’ is an intense and vivid bestiary, which lingers unsettlingly in the mind’ ―Martin Amis ‘Chilling... Ballard is a prophetic writer’ Sunday Times‘The writing is cool, the observation exact, the idea bold and well-developed; everything seems to demand attention and analysis’ ―Financial Times ‘The terrifying thing about Ballard is his logic; is this science fiction or history written ahead of its time?’ ―Len Deighton
