A chilling novel about our modern world, from the author of Empire of the Sun and Crash.
An architect is driving home from his London offices when a blow-out sends his speeding Jaguar hurtling out of control and crashing through the motorway barrier. When he tries to climb the embankment or flag-down a passing car for help it proves impossible — and he finds himself marooned on the concrete island. In this twisted version of Robinson Crusoe, our hero must learn to survive — using only what he can find in his crashed car.
Concrete Island provides an unnerving study of our modern lives and world. With his alienating, ‘Ballardian’ view of normal events, this is a unique novel from one of our finest writers.
