Books Info:

Super-Cannes free pdf After over three decades at the forefront of modern British fiction writing, J.G. Ballard reached a new generation of readers with the bestselling Cocaine Nights - an intriguing murder mystery that was also an unnerving vision of a society with too much time on its hands. Now, in Super-Cannes, he delves into another closed community - where this time it is claimed that 'work is the new leisure.' Paul Sinclair stumbles on a beguiling mystery when he accompanies his wife Jane to the south of France where she is to work as a doctor in Eden-Olympia, a high-tech business park set in the hills above Cannes. With the very latest in facilities, Eden-Olympia appears to be a paradise for its hard-working, high-achieving workforce. So what caused Jane's apparently sane and respected predecessor to set out one morning and murder ten people on a shooting spree that would make headlines around the world?

About J. G. Ballard

J.G. Ballard was born in 1930 in Shanghai, where his father was a businessman. After internment in a civilian prison camp, he and his family returned to England in 1946. His 1984 bestseller Empire of the Sun won the Guardian Fiction Prize and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. It was later filmed by Steven Spielberg. His controversial novel Crash has recently been made into an equally controversial film by David Cronenberg.
