    Hi miette,

    I just love these podcasts. I was listening to librivox’s psmith in the city and happened to come
    across two chapters read by you. What a pleasant surprise!

    Keep it up.

    If you want to read a Ballard novel, I suggest The Concrete Island to start off with.

    I recommend just about all Ballard novels. And his stories are all as self-contained as this one, and perfect slivers of his longer work, and just as recommended. Glad so many people are finding this one.
