3rd Impression. [First Edition: Same Year] From the cover: “Based on events J. G. Ballard witnessed while interned in Shanghai during World War II, Empire of the Sun is an extraordinary and original addition to the modem literature of war, a novel worthy to stand in the company of ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’ and ‘The Naked and the Dead’. The horrors and privations of the Japanese internment camps, as seen through the eyes ofa child to whom they are part of normal life, are presented unflinchingly — yet the novel is written in prose which is often lyrical and even beautiful.”
