J.G. Ballard’s House for Sale

The long-time home of author J.G. Ballard (1930-2009) in Shepperton, UK, has gone on the market. The asking price for the house is just under £320,000.  Ballard lived in the small, suburban residence for 49 years, and wrote many of his most famous works there, including Crash and Cocaine Nights. According to reporter Rob Sharp, it is a “rather drab semi-detached home,” whose modest asking price does not include the value of being “inextricably linked with the life of one of post-war fiction’s greatest talents.”
