the rime of the ancient imagista

“Today only bad actors can lead a nation, as Reagan and Blair showed. Poor Gordon Brown needs six months at Rada and a tryout at the Old Vic.” JG Ballard, quoted in James Campbell’s piece in the Guardian. But also, of himself: “Just because you’re right, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be viewed with great suspicion.”

“Seated before his reconstituted Delvaux,” Campbell concludes, “Ballard is at home with his paradoxes.”
