Ballard's surreal masterpiece revolves around a lonely young man who steals a plane and crash lands into the river in Shepperton, Surrey. Assisted in his escape from justice by the local townsfolk, he develops strange supernatural powers; flying as a condor, swimming as a whale, running as a deer, and much stranger besides. The book won the British Science Fiction Association Award in 1980.
