J.G. Ballard on J.G. Ballard

"[A]s in Dalí’s paintings, there are more elements of collage than might meet the eye at first glance. A large amount of documentary material finds its way into my fiction.... [including] a transcript of a secret tape recording I made of my then-girlfriend in a rage.*"
-- J.G. Ballard in the Paris Review interview 

* Curious. I know a fellow who saved angry phone messages from his girlfriend.
