Lethem on Ballard


Jonathan Lethem has written an outstanding blurb for my upcoming book on J.G. Ballard for University of Illinois Press's Modern Masters of Science Fiction series:

"A new comprehensive standard. Wilson's insights reach to the furthest ends of J.G. Ballard's bookshelf, complicate easy assumptions about the location of the 'autobiographical' in his novels, and, best of all, assert that if there is a Science Fiction worth advancing into the 21st Century, Ballard is at the center, not the periphery, of that project."
