Putting the dead back in deadpan

Another lovely review of The Warhol Gang, this time from the Montreal Gazette. And, I guess, the first review from the Postmedia Network. I have to admit, though, that I have never read any of JG Ballard’s fiction or even seen Crash. Instead, the obsession with accident scenes in the book is based on a news story I read years ago about a guy who pretended to be a first responder and helped people at accidents because… well, I don’t know why he did it. Which is what led me into The Warhol Gang.

I only say this because it’s come up in a couple of reviews and I’m starting to feel sheepish about the gap in my library. I do, however, have a book of JG Ballard quotes that I’m endlessly fascinated by. See also Oscar Wilde.
