From the author of the Sunday Times bestseller Cocaine Nights, High-Rise is an unnerving tale of life in a modern tower block running out of control.

Within the concealing walls of an elegant 40-storey tower block, the affluent tenants are hell-bent on an orgy of destruction. Cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on 'enemy' floors and the once-luxurious amenities become an arena for riots and technological mayhem. In this visionary tale of urban disillusionment from the renowned author of Crash and Cocaine Nights, society slips into a violent reverse as the isolated inhabitants of the high-rise, driven by primal urges, recreate a dystopian world ruled by the laws of the jungle.

'Ballard’s finest novel ... a triumph.'
The Times

'Chilling ... Ballard is a prophetic writer.'
Sunday Times

'The writing is cool, the observation exact, the idea bold and well-developed; everything seems to demand attention and analysis.'
Financial Times

'ingenious ... 'High-Rise' is an intense and vivid bestiary, which lingers unsettlingly in the mind.'
Martin Amis

'The terrifying thing about Ballard is his logic, is this science fiction or history written ahead of its time?'
Len Deighton
