# James Graham Ballard recorded by Liberation

To celebrate the (late) translation of James Graham Ballard's autobiography in French (which by the way was transformed from Miracles of Life to La vie et rien d'autre for no reasons...), French newspaper Liberation released three small audio recordings of interview with Ballard. With his delightful English accent, JGB talks about a Sadian society for masochist consumers and the appearance of a soft suburbian facism taking over western world. It is interesting to observe that in his speech he tends to forget the very beautiful ambiguity he succeed to create through his book for this modern world and be a little reactionary... (it makes me think of Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clezio saying that when an author speaks out of his books, he is always disappointing !).
