The Drought: A Novel

J. G. Ballard


An apocalyptic dystopia like no different, one whose "originality and tool [of] imaginative and prescient may be felt" (Times Literary Supplement).

Weird and mesmerizingly gruesome, The Drought tells the chilling tale of the area near to extinction, the place an international drought, because of business waste, has left mankind in a life-or-death look for water. Violence erupts and madness reigns because the human race struggles for survival in a global wilderness of depression.
