Author JG Ballard lived here



Author JG Ballard lived here

Dystopian futurologist author JG Ballard lived here.

Location: 36 Old Charlton Road, Shepperton

Description: This ordinary suburban semi is classic Ballard. JG Ballard was one of the 20th century's greatest science fiction writers. His childhood growing up in war-torn Shanghai was the inspiration for his semi-biographical novel Empire of the Sun, made cinematically glorious by Steven Spielberg.

He lived here in all it's 1930's glory for 49 years crafting warped thrillers such as Crash and Cocaine Nights featuring empty swimming pools and abandoned airstrips.
