Product description


‘Ballard’s finest novel… Vibrant with irony and images, a triumph of artistry and feeling.’ The Times

‘Ingenious… High-Rise is an intense and vivid bestiary, which lingers unsettlingly in the mind.’ Martin Amis

‘A gripping read, particularly if you like your thrills chilly, bloody and with claims to social relevance.’ Time Out

‘An eerie glimpse into the future. A fast-moving, spine-tingling fable of the concrete jungle.’ Daily Express

‘Chilling… Ballard is a prophetic writer’ Sunday Times


From the author of the bestselling novel Cocaine Nights -- the unnerving tale of life in a modern tower block running out of control -- reissued with a stunning new jacket alongside five other Flamingo classics from the 1970s. 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 technological mayhem...In this visionary tale from the author of Crash, Empire of the Sun and Super-Cannes, human society slips into violent reverse as the inhabitants of the high-rise, driven by primal urges, recreate a world ruled by the laws of the jungle.
