Since novelist J.G. Ballard died earlier this week, tributes have streamed in from all corners of the Internet. Among them, Channel4 had an audio interview with Martin Amis about his relationship with the author.
Novelist Neil Gaiman had this memory: “[S]omewhere around 1985, my friend Kathy Acker took me to a party/book launch/some kind of event somewhere in London and I met William Burroughs and Jim Ballard, stood there and chatted as they reminisced about London in the 1960s.”
Thom Yorke from Radiohead told Granta: “He turned a mirror on our super-Cannes world and revealed transparent dysfunctional creations playing out bit parts in a play with no author. It was a dirty job but someone had to do it.”
