Hello America

by J. G. Ballard
Release date: 1981
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

A terrifying vision of the future from one of our most renowned writers – J G Ballard, author of "Empire of the Sun" and "Crash". Following the energy crisis of the late twentieth-century America has been abandoned. Now, a century later, a small group of European explorers returns to the deserted continent. But America is unrecognisable – the Bering Strait has been dammed and the whole continent has become a desert, populated by isolated natives and the bizarre remnants of a disintegrated culture. The expedition sets off from Manhattan on a cross-continent journey, through Holiday Inns and abandoned theme parks. They will uncover a shocking new power in the heart of Las Vegas in this unique vision of our world transformed.
