Overview

On the arid, war-plagued terrain of central Africa, a manic doctor is consumed with visions of transforming the Sahara into a land of abundance. But Dr. Mallory’s obsession quickly spirals dangerously out of control. First published in 1987, this classic Ballard thriller continues to resonate “with dark implications for the future of humanity” (Publishers Weekly).

""The Day of Creation is a metaphysical adventure story dealing with complex themes–the life-giving qualities of water, the cold eye of television, obsession, love–all set in a dream Africa, as if hallucinated by Joseph Conrad."–Angela Carter
"Ballard has successfully created a new myth, a late-20th-century saga of distracted humans making a lonely voyage through time and the river to the well-spring of their parched imaginations." –"Time
"A near-classic adventure." –"The New York Times Book Review
"Lyrical, hallucinatory...virtuosic...Few authors today can approach Ballard's gift for placing his reader in a perfectly realized hypnotic world." –"The Philadelphia Inquirer
