you dont speak about ballard's shamanic process of litterature, both
mythomaniac & schizophrene that make total exchange about what one could
call 'english privacy' and 'the world'. and suddenly an exchange and a
denegation of 'public'. i dont know the english title of his 'sky scrapper'
(i.g.h. in french) where some high class living in, decide to no more go out
the tower, do you bet black buziness building look like static limousine for
the poor guyz. who wouldnt be flabbergasted about his (so intimist?)
description of ronald reagan long befor he was president..no really for me
to make ballard a guy of duchamp & warhol familly iz a not enuf, except in
his more sophisticated stage of individualism, er 'robota' mean 'work' i.e.
a kind of objective zombie i.e. wizout conscience of class, and really who
imagine a second andy wanting to look like a 'robot' except for stealing the
funny wig of zis bald worker as one would want take the large panz of
rapper, wiz some hope. it's the way he treat his theme that are original,
simply the brand of a great writer
