  1. It is indeed interesting. It was the poster outside the British Library quoting Ballard’s “The suburbs dream of violence” that caught my eye. There are some useful reviews at http://www.bl.uk/whatson/exhibitions/writingbritain/reviews/index.htm. (The quote is from ‘Kingdom Come’, about murder in a ‘bland’ suburban shopping mall. Naturally: the standard anti-suburban trope of boredom is the cause.)
