Subject: Bea Ballard's Tribute JG Ballard--London Times

There are many articles, obituaries, testimonies being written about JGB at
the moment but if you had to read just one, I would recommend the moving
testimony of Bea Ballard, his daughter:

"In the last few years The Atrocity Exhibition seems to be emerging
from the dark, and I wonder if the widespread use of the Internet has made
my experimental novel a great deal more accessible. The short paragraphs and
discontinuities of the morning's emails, the overlapping texts and the need
to switch one's focus between unrelated topics, together create a
fragmentary world very like the text of The Atrocity Exhibition"
