Paul Yougquist - Professor of English, Penn State University Park

Book Title: The Atrocity Exhibition

Author: J.G. Ballard, Preface by William Burroughs

Book Description:

This is the book that first taught me about the world I grew up in, the post industrial mediascape of the sixties. It opened my eyes to the fate of the human body in contemporary culture and set my agenda for investigating its eighteenth-century heritage.
