JG Ballard has often lauded writers for 'imagining' (or reimagining)the
real world. Jeff's comparison of Vian to Rousseau would, I think, seem
like praise to Ballard. Some writer's fantasies spill over into the
real world. Like Kafka. Or like for Ballard who repeats images in his
books so often that they(car parks, highways, gated communities and war
ravaged cities) get described as 'Ballardian'.
