JG Ballard Concrete Island

SYNOPSIS

Driving home from his office in central London, Robert Maitland, a 35-year-old architect, is involved in a sudden accident when his car has a blow-out. It swerves off the embankment and lands in a small traffic island that lies beneath three converging motorways. Maitland is shaken but uninjured; he sets off to climb the embankment and call for help. But his real ordeal is now about to begin. For no one will stop for him, and he finds that he is marooned like a latter-day Crusoe on this concrete island in the centre of one of the world's largest and most modern cities, rlis only resources are the contents of his crashed car and his own reserves of strength and will.
