Concrete Island

By:

Ballard, J.G.

Genre:

Speculative Fiction

A car crash onto an allegorical roadside island leaves a man trapped in a place between reality and his fractured mind.

"I know it became a kind of 'Suede-by-numbers' but I've always been fascinated by that iconography - the edge-lands, the fringes, the 'nowhere places'. Kind of inspired by JG Ballard's 'Concrete Island', I suppose." - Brett Anderson, 'Coming Up' Tim's Twitter Listening Party, May 2021
