    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'.
