James Graham J. G. Ballard was an English novelist, short story writer, and essayist. He came to be associated with the New Wave of science fiction early in his career with apocalyptic novels such as The Drowned World, The Burning World, and The Crystal World. In the late 1960s and early 1970s Ballard focused on an eclectic variety of short stories such as those found in The Atrocity Exhibition, which drew comparison with the work of postmodernist writers such as William S. Burroughs. In 1973 the highly controversial novel Crash was published, a story about symphorophilia and car crash fetishism- the protagonist becomes sexually aroused by staging and participating in car crashes. The story was later adapted into a film of the same name by David Cronenberg.
