A Liveright book
"The most cosmically elegiac writer in literature . . . no one reading Ballard could doubt the tidal gravity of his intellect." —Jonathan Lethem, New York Times Book Review
Violent rebellion comes to London’s middle classes in this “fascinating” (San Francisco Chronicle) novel from the same author of Crash and Empire of the Sun. Never more timely, Millennium People “seeks to illuminate our hearts of darkness while undermining our assumptions about what literature is meant to do” (Los Angeles Times).

Endorsements & Reviews
“Consider Ballard's late novel Millennium People.... The events of 9/11 had not yet begun to fade into memory...but Ballard was right on time with his depiction of a police psychologist who, infiltrating a band of terrorists in the London suburbs, finds them to be—well, suburbanites.... [A]s Norton embarks on a program to reissue his work...the thought of more Ballard to read is enough to make even a dystopian think a little better of the world.” — Gregory McNamee, Kirkus Reviews
