iain sinclair on j.g. ballard

An interview over at ballardian.com with Iain Sinclair who's written some interesting psychogeography-type books in his time (eg. Lights Out for the Territories and London Orbital), specifically talking about his views on J.G. Ballard.

I think he’s been reinvented — not by himself, because he’s carried on doing what he’s always done — but by the literary consensus who have reinvented him and think of him as being something really that he isn’t: this sort of genial but provocative figure sitting out there writing about the Metro Centre and shopping malls and stuff. I can see the reviews even now. But the real early energy and madness is still not appreciated.
